    I wouldn't bother with a kit. There is ALWAYS something with any prebuilt system, even a barebones system, that is lacking in quality. If you want a good computer, you're just going to have to suck it up and pay more for good parts all-around.

    actually, that's not a bad kit. But it's a "G" mobo... you want a "P" mobo if you're into gaming or 3d stuff.

    not into gaming really.

    I'm just looking for a sytem for home use. I want something that won't bog all to hell when running multiple apps and surfing the net.

    Would the P Mobo help with things other than gaming? Is it a worthy upgrade regardless?

    what is lacking in quality with that kit? I'll replace the crappy part with a good part.

    the 'P' chipset is better, anyway... yes.

    I don't like the case too much; granted, it's not a crappy part necessarily, but if you buy all separate components then you can get exactly what you want for each of the components, including the case.

    First of all, the drive-bay-door is an accident waiting to happen -- one careless leg or arm movement and you'll snap the door right off the case. And then there's the size; a full-ATX case for a micro-ATX motherboard? Why bother? You're not going to use all that space, the case is way too big to put up on a desk. Get a proper micro-ATX case; they actually make some that look nice nowadays.
