    not that great, you can do better if you build it yourself, plus you can pick better parts, that nforce 630i motherboard is low end.
    Just make sure when you go into the ncix website, you go in through the flash banner to get the sale prices, that can add up quickly.

    You could build something better for the same price.

    It's from www.newegg.com.

    I'm not a fan of prebuilts. If you know how to read reviews to weed out crappy parts, and if you can operate a screwdriver without stabbing it through the motherboard, you can build yourself a comparable machine (minus the warranty, which you don't need if you do it right) for less money -- unless you mark up your own parts so you can make a profit off yourself.

    since some noobs dont consider this, i thought i'd throw it out there:

    most parts would have their own manufacturer's warranty anyway, which is generally as good or better than the warranty you'd get with a pre-built machine.

    True. Just save the receipts and you'll be fine.
