Not to rain on your parade, but $500 doesn't get you Good IMO, it only gets you sub-Par. With that said, yeah, it's sub-Par.

I would wait until you have at least double saved which will allow you to build a machine that is, at minium, twice as fast. You'll appreciate it much more and will last you longer before the next upgrade.
