    You should've gotten a CPU with less cache with a faster clockspeed. The L2 cache doesn't have a huge impact with games.

    RayJon, on Newegg the lowest you'll find for such a part is $44 & that's from a worthy brand so it's not that much more expensive.

    As you say you built it with gaming in mind, sometime down the road you are going to want to upgrade to 1Gb of ram. It will make a pretty big difference on that system.

    now save some $ on software and download openoffice from

    Mozilla, thunderbird, and sunbird from

    get a free anti-virus from AVG.

    no need for M$ office, outlook, or any of that crap.

    The only other thing i would think would be a good upgrade would be a better power supply (have not had good luck with PSU that came with a case). Oh and yeah 512 more ram would help you out to
