How is this mid range build?
I believe I can do virtualization with this processor?
My desire was to play DOOMIII, HL2 and America's Army 3.0 with this setup - should this not be enough?
It seems like I can also play some of the "latest games" with this too?
If I can't - no worries - this going to my parents anyways after a month or two :-)
Could I have done better in approx the same price with some other components?
For example, should I have chosed an ATI GPU instead?
