Good for what? For a general use Office and internet computer it will work. It will not be good for gaming though. The parts are quite a bit outdated and thats why it's so cheap.

    Approximate Purchase Date: 2012- Early 2013 (Not really in a Hurry, Just want to know what I should buy so I can buy them if they are on sale.

    Budget Range: 500-1000

    System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, High quality videos etc.

    Parts Not Required: -

    Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon.co.uk etc. 'UK' Websites which take £ British Sterlings £ (not $$$$$)

    Country: England, London

    Parts Preferences: GPU: Nvidia GTX ***/AMD HD ****, 20"-23" HD Monitor, Intel Core i*,

    Overclocking: Maybe

    SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

    Monitor Resolution: any of these these types that would run the Game (Battlefield 3, Skyrim) and would work smooth on High - Ultra - Depending on the GPU (1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)

    Additional Comments:

    I don't really mind the sound of the Fans/PC when I play, because I use a Headphones (Tritton AX 120) on a High Volume< so don't really hear the fans.

    I don't mind waiting for the next GPU's GTX 6**, HD 7*** because I'm not really in a hurry.

    Present PC:

    I already have a good computer (Dell 8100, Windows 7, Intel Core i7 860 2.80GHz, 6GB RAM, ''''''GTS 240'''''). I actually overclocked this GPU and works fine when I play BF3 on Medium, but then then when I play too much e.g. 4-5hr Gameplay in a day, after about 10-15mins of playing the driver stops responding and the game freezes. But then next the GPU cools down and is ready for some more BF3. But the PC isn't really for HARDCORE GAMING so I decided to ask for some advice from you guys to help me build a PC which is mainly Everyday Gaming/Hardcore Gaming PC.

    if your case has enough space, you could just pick up a gtx580 or HD7970 and replace your GPU and it should work well :)
