Is it good? Thanks.

P.S. Processor's TDP is 45W. Motherboard is a micro-ATX. HDD is single-plated.
P.P.S. Chassis comes with a PSU, and its original price is $80. PSU is 460 W from a same manufacturer. Could possibly be $60.

Good is relative, what exactly are you going to be doing with that PC? If you're going to be doing normal everyday tasks like email and web surfing, it will do well. If you're a gamer, it will be a painful experience since you have little memory, an underpowered CPU, and an internal video card.

for general web surfing, music, basic movie watching yes-for anything demanding like high end games, video editing, or the like, no. if your looking for a powerhouse, no, if your looking for a PC to just be a around the house, play around on the internet and watch movies listen to music, perhaps some music editing, wouldnt be a bad choice, though I think Id find a better Power supply, but that ones not to horrible. :D

Well...I would disagree with the comments about fitness for video/audio editing/rendering.

I have a X2 4400 system and have used a x2 4200 system for both (constantly) with no problems at all. As long as there is sufficient RAM, neither any longer falls into what I would consider "taxing" on a system. I'd go with 4GB, not 2GB of RAM...prices pretty much demand such today.

The only thing I would not recommend doing on that system is attempting to play newer, more demanding games (I am not a gamer).

If you are a gamer, I don't suggest that PC for games that are two years or less old. The PC above can handle typical everyday tasks with ease, but if you are wanting to game or render, a more powerful CPU and more memory are strongly suggested.
