Would like some feedback on this current build exactly as shown. I really am worried about the phenom II, and also video card. I have been out of the computer game for over 6 years so all this new technology is pretty unfamiliar. If you have heard any negatives about anything on my list I would love to know. How many months do you think I would have on that v-card before it became obsolete? Also for an extra 10 bucks would it be worth it to throw in a couple extra fans? And yes I know the HD is small, but im trying to save as much money as possible. Oh and FYI I am trying to make this a gaming PC. Thank you for your time.

Hi, as I live in Aus I can't really help with pricing but this is a low end gaming rig. I would not recommend it :blink:

An easy way to save money is on the case. You can get pretty bland cases for very cheap which will knock an easy $70 USD off your price.

I would say the weakest point in your system is that video card though. Once you upgrade the video card to an ATI 5850 at least with similar RAM you should be ok. Also note that I said OK and not GREATEST SYSTEM EVER.
