Hey guys. I'm contemplating purchasing this computer and was wondering what the general consensus on the system was. I'll mainly be using it for simple stuff (internet, (home)work, music, etc) and will only be doing some moderate gaming on it (SC2, the new Diablo when it comes out. No Crysis, lol). I would build one, but I'd prefer having a warranty on it and I have absolutely no experience building them.

- AMD Phenom X4 830 quad-core (2.8 GHz, 2MB L2 + 4MB L3 shared)
- 750GB HD
- 1 GB ATI Radeon HD 5570
- Windows 7

I believe the monitor I'll be going with will be 23" 1920x1080. My biggest concern is with the video cards. There are a couple options, but I'm not sure what exactly is best. A 1 GB ATI HD 5450 is slightly cheaper, and a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT220 (or GT 230) are decently more expensive. Is what I have now good for what I'll be doing with it? The base computer I'm putting together is an HP Elite HPE-300z, if that makes looking at this easier.
