Thanks to my profound stupidity in deleting AppleTalk from my old Compaq (see Profile page for specs), and the fact I don't have an installation/recovery disk to fix it, it looks as though I'm in the market (Scotland, UK) for a new Beast to see me well in to the next decade.
I've scanned a few sites, and quite a few PC's with lots of different specs and think I like this one, but need you tell me YES or NO - and if NO, what should I do please, as the seller says it's customizable.
I intend to use it with Vista Home Premium for gaming, TV, telephony, video, torrent up/downloads and all the usual others.
Here's the specs for £547.23 (around $1100):
Chassis Gigabyte Triton 180 Black Aluminium Front (Without PSU);
Power Supplies Corsair Powersupply 520W Black, ATX/EPS, 120mm Fan, 4xSATA, SLI, WxHxL 150x86x150;

Processors AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz Socket AM2 2MB, BOXED w/fan;
Memory Corsair TWIN2X 6400C4 DDR2, 2048MB CL4, Kit w/two 1GB Dimm's, E.P.P Technology;

Am I being stupid and/or ripped off with this deal? Should I change anything to get better value? Do you need further details?
