you should upgrade the graphics card because that card is really outdated. it isnt good just because it has 512mb of ram. for example my card only has 320mb of ram and its the 3rd best single video card out of all of them out, and in most people's mind the best bang for buck, it is an 8800GTS

That and the power supply, you don't want to depend on the 450W, or any that come with most cases.

are you buying it from from a site like dell.com or are you building the computer yourself by buying individual parts from sites like newegg.com and tigerdirect.com

he cant he lives in canada, that store is based in alberta. besides he might not know how to build the whole thing. also small computer stores can have pretty good deals.

Looks good except for the video card. You can upgrade the power supply later since that isn't a priority right now.

If price is a concern, get something like this:

EVGA GeForce 8600 GT
