I dont really need anything crazy fast, but have been on the brink of buying an entry level gaming computer for a while now. Any opinions on todays woot.com sale? I read some of the message board posts over there and it seems that if i upgraded the video card and power supply it would be decent. I dont mind at all to upgrade those 2 things a little down the road (2/3 months)....Any advice would be appreciated.

how much is that 1045 system?

I'd suggest my personal build (see my signature) as a good entry level gaming system for $600

forgot to mention, price is $585 shipped

I realize building my own would be a bit cheaper, but I don't feel comfortable in my experience to cross that bridge yet. Eventually I would like to, but for now I would rather go with something like this so I can just upgrade a piece at a time and learn that way.

if you go prebuilt, Look at getting at LEAST a 1075 (3.0 GHz) if you stay 6 core. and for actual gaming at least a 6790 or gtx 550

That cpu is too slow for gaming. You would need to overclock it.

You would be better off getting a faster quad core. 3ghz or more.
