Its not a bad price considering that it is hardware and software licences as well.

Can it be revised or is it a set build? if so;

1] RAM
2] Mobo
3] PSU

Could be worked around to get something a bit better.

Change the motherboard (v-lx sucks) and get at least 8gb of ram (2x4gb)

You could replace that Nvidia card with a 6970 a little cheaper and a little bether.

Well some other website benchmark favorise the GTX570 over the hd 6970 but I tend to prefer toms hardware benchmark as they feature everything involved into the test.

And as for the price the Radeon is 320$ with Free Dirt3 game and a 20$ rebate (300$)

gtx570 is 330$ with no free game and a 20$ rebate (310$).

Performance and price difference are thin so neither choice is bad but I'm bias toward ATI. The 2Gb vs 1.2GB can do the trick if you ever want to go for a 3monitor set-up but it won't change a dam thing on a 1080p format.

Get 2x 4GB of RAM
