    If your into gaming...scrap that Gfx card, and add in 512, and youd have a decent gaming rig. But if not, that thing is good to go. What currency is that in?

    You got trojans from the site? Thats weird. I will try and kind a different stats site, but there are so few, let alone ones that allow you to link out.

    And im really not that good lol...

    You could use motherboad monitor, it reads temps.

    If your board isn't listed in the setup thing(like mine wasn't), then just pick one similar and then manually configure it until it gives you reasonable readings. I think at first I was getting temps like -127C, but once I changed it to a different sensor, it seems to work well.

    Everest home can also tell temps, in the "sensor" section.

    nice only a few problems no winxp pro, and it's not at least 2.8ghz which is a minimum for good performance on some games other than that it's pretty good just upgrade that card to a PCI express ATI Radeion 600 or higher.

    It would help to better generate opinions if you described your intentions with the machine. What will it be used for?

    Without knowing your uses, I would say it's at best a decent machine. You can certainly build one for less with a few more extras. If I'm spending $1300 on a PC I better have at least 2GB of dual channel RAM included.

    My bad, didn't see the other posts. Well, congrats! For gaming I guess that's a good rig.

    I think your a bit off


    First,

    There is no stock AMD CPU (to my knowledge) that has a 2.8ghz clock. Intel, yes, but with amds the clock is not the determing factor (they are much more effiecnt at a lower clock speed)
    For example
    a 3GHz p4 is equal (give or take) to a AMD 3000+ (in which the clock speed is 2Ghz)

    And from personal expirence, stay away from the x600 series GPU. I bought one for even a light gaming rig and was utterly dissapointed.

    It shouldn't be a problem unless there was something wrong with you pc configuration (x600)

    If AMD has fast processors ohh my god I would switch but until then nope

    I had a p4 1.7ghz before i got my new AMD dual core :D. It was so cool but now that i gone AMD it is so much better... AMD is the way forward :grinthumb

    I am a complete supporter of AMD, when you can get one, do get one. Their the best. Full stop.
