    Depends on what you want it for.

    What's the main purpose that this machine is to perform?

    Not bad, but if you can squeeze an extra $50-$100 on the vid card, you might not feel too anemic later, if you're a gamer.

    Make sure you've got a big hammer.

    Otherwise you are going to have difficulty fitting that AGP graphics card into the PCI-Express motherboard.

    Ugh I almost fell for that same mistake that I fell for last time I built a computer lol. Also im on a budget so I can't sqeeze any more cash because iv'e already sqeezed in 120$ more then I should be. But if anyone could figure a way may a little bit lower cost of a mobo, or something to fit in a little bit better of a graphics card. It's going to be a gaming computer but it won't be mine.

    you guys crack me up. my question is 350W really enough for a gaming console, ive always looked at 400-500W, thinking is was necessary. saying one didnt overclock or have 20 fans cooling their case

    To save some money, you could use a bit slower CPU.

    and then get a PCI Express card. Maybe a GF6200 or GF6600

    You could also save another $9 by not getting a floppy drive.

    You can "manage" with 350W but not with a powerful graphics card.
