    I voted "Pretty good".

    The reason I chose "Pretty good" is because nothing listed is really the "best of the best", but still very good and excellent in some cases. Perhaps if you had a P4 3.6GHz, a Radeon x800 and a 400GB SATA drive.. Now that's BAD ***! ;)

    Some high points include 1GB of memory (nicely done!) and a very fast 3.2GHz P4. But the integrated sound card should really be replaced with something decent (like an Audigy). 80GB is usually enough storage space for most people, the stock cooling should be sufficient and the DVD combo drive is a nice touch.

    Before you purchase, you should cross check the prices you have with www.newegg.com. You might find better deals there. If you are already pretty close to newegg prices, then you are doing well for sure. :)

    At the price of DVD-RWs now I don't see why you don't have one in there. I voted pretty good as well.

    lol, Looks like all "Pretty Good"s to me.

    What manufacturer's site is that off of? Anyone who needs ("needs" as in is willing to spend that much money) a computer as fast as that should know how to build one themselves, IMHO.

    But overall a very good computer for the price. You could save money, and thus get some faster or better components if you built it yourself though, by ordering the parts off Newegg.

    SUCKS, throw it away.

    You don't have a DVD writer, RAID, or over 1GB of RAM.

    I do! ;)
