    Fair enough! I actually bought the mobo/sound, cpu, graphics & memory in the last quarter of 2009 following a total system meltdown from my old rig. The psu and cpu fan are recent purchases. The rest are old.

    Yes, I do game. I know the graphics are weak as compared to the mobo & cpu. I basically ran out of $$ as I didn't upgrade all in one go.
  5. ^ Just upgrade the graphics to say HD 5850 or above and your PC rating could jump to 8 or 9 right away...
