    You cant really get a good PC for $180 USD :confused:. The X2 is not good for gaming and the 9800 GT is outdated. I guess that is what you get for 200 bucks though.

    Just make sure your current PSU can handle the load of the new video card.

    It should be okay for most games, if you're playing at resolutions upto 720p. Go higher and performance will likely start to suffer significantly.

    I'd suggest buying a console instead.

    Well, if you want to play games from 5 years ago you dont need to spend money.

    Yeah, but that build was a gaming PC 5 years ago. It's not even a low-end office PC anymore. :(

    I don't get it. If you're casual gamer, I'm sure you'll find most of the PC games on console anyway.

    Plus, Low settings on PC is basically equal to normal settings on a PS3 and/or Xbox.

    With that budget, I doubt he would be buying the games...
