If you're not looking to upgrade for a few months, I would wait and save up a bit more. If you can get into the $400-500 range you can get some better quality parts.

You could also buy some parts used - nowadays you can get some deals on some better Core 2 Duos and 4870s.

pickup an emachine from your local bestbuy. Much more cost effective than trying to custom build at that price range

Quite frankly there is.no reason at all for that system to have 8 gigs of memory. get 4 for 20 bucks. Or an aftermarket HSF. take that money and stick it toward the CPU.

www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681910388...

Run it on the stock hsf for now, when you get another 30 bucks slap a hyper 212 on it, unlock it to a quad and overclock. That will be FAR more performance than you could EVER see out of the dual core. Athlon II. So thisvway your CPU isnyva complete throwaway part

The 4850 shouldn't be horrible with your res and I cant really come up with better in the budget.

If you aren't buying for 3 months though this discussion is silly. that 4850 will be gone, prices will change, parts will be discontinued. I dont see that you have a PSU? and save up another 50 bucks for a modern GPU
