It depends on what you are using the system for. These are all older components, the processor and motherboard especially. If you are planning on playing games, this will not handle most mid range games and will not handle demanding games. For internet use (mini games, youtube, mail, etc) it will be fine, maybe a little sluggish as it only has 2GB of ram so your integrated graphics will be taking away from that RAM. If you are using it as a basic home theatre PC it should be fine for that. I would suggest spending 300 bucks on a Phenom II X4 quad core (90 to 120 bucks)with a lower to mid range motherboard (90 -120) with a low end dedicated graphics card (HD 6450 = 50 bucks) for a computer with much better performance. That way you can reuse all of your other components liker your case and power supply and so on. Your main bottlenecks though are your 2GB of RAM and your CPU.
