$450 including s/h (to me anyway) Sure it's not the best system.But the mo/bo is loaded with features and plenty of expansion.Board is OC friendly.As well as fully expandable to the newest quad cores. Sure you start out with 4 gigs of ram.But in a week or 2 order another 4 gigs and your set for a while. The ATI card is not the cream of the crop but it still stands on the top 15 game cards released.ATI card will also have AMD overclock software. Nice little system till games start putting out DX 11 which is a while away.
Emachines are junk and that barebones is already outdated.Atleast with a build your in the current tech range.
