    To be honest, this is terrific for that price. A radeon 4650 or gt 220 would be great for that video usage, neither of which would require supplemental power. I would take that card out and sell it to replace with one of the aformentioned for an additional net 50 dollars.
  3. I would actually say its a bit overpriced. You can build your own custom rig for $300 these days assuming you have some spare parts. laying around.
  4. I'm all for building your own but I don't think you are going to do better than that for $340. Let's say an Athlon II x4 + mobo for $160, 4gb ram for $80, 750gb HD for $70, DVD burner $30. That's already $340 without case/PSU and isn't really at all superior.
