Not bad, shop around. There are some great bundle deals out there. I recently built a pretty nice sys, mostly from Tiger Direct. I think for the money, you could do better. Looking at the most expensive, for that I could find you at least 2.4 intel Duo(that 1 is 2.13) Geforce 8800 640mb(That 1 is 320), And Intel975xbx2 mobo, double the memory, and better quality(I have Corsair dominator, that is Corsair TwinX). I couldn't find specs on the PSU, that can make a big difference too. I shelled out about 1400, and my sys makes all of them look sad. New products are coming out now for the holidays so prices will be coming down on a lot of last yrs stuff.
