Did you put this together or is it premade? If the latter you should just get the individual components and put it together yourself, for a much lesser price at that.
Also, as far as AMD goes go with either the Venice or San Diego cores. Do they make 3400's in the latest cores? I'm not sure, but I would guess no. Either go with the 3500 venice, or 3700 san diego (I got this one, it's nice). Don't go with an agp video card either because now the latest thing is PCI Express so it's better to go with that instead.
From the looks of it, what you selected looks too pricy for what it is.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

He said he's to lazy. Listen to what people tell you, no need to question people all the time.
I'm trying to save him some money k? With premade systems you pay a TREMENDOUS amount of money just on the brand name, and for a good gaming system for what he wants could cost hundreds of dollars more than what he could spend if he made it himself. Think of it this way: he spends 1200 on a better gaming system than what he could have gotten for 2000, and he could use that 800 he saved on something like a xbox360 or an ipod, or maybe a car, whatever.
