tru it's slightly out of date. but with a few tweaks i think it could be a pretty kick [bleep] mid-range system.
replace the mobo with an msi K8N platinum. as for the dvd burner go with a lite-on, very cheap but they also support nearly every type of DVD/CD. as for the speakers i like that they went with logitech. the 5.1 is really only needed if you watch a lot of movies on ur computer. otherwise just get a set of speakers and a bass. i do however like their choice of CPU, graphics, case, power supply, and hard drive. idk bout the sound card though. haven't put much research into them yet.
i agree with warriorscot. you don't need 512mb of graphics at this point. maybe in couple years but who knows. a 512 will not give a you big performance boost over a 256 model.
