Hey, I was wondering what you guys thought of my PC setup. I'm on a tight budget of about maximum $700.

Hi :) 

Reasonable machine as long as you are not planning on playing any games on Ultra...

All the best Brett :)

It won't even start up due to the crappy power supply but other than that it's pretty decent.But i can make you a much better one for the same price.
And ugh btw you didnt include the graphics card in the price.

I made you a PC that's significantly better than the one you made.It's also cheaper (if you include the costs of a graphics card in your build)

Thanks for the reply's! Sorry I didn't realize that it didn't add the price for the video card on there. If I may ask, what about the power supply makes it crappy? Is it the fact that it comes with the case and I'd be better off buying them separately? Also is the 7850 really that much better than the 6950? I guess though since they are pretty much the same price any difference makes it worth while correct?

Thanks.
