    The PC is pretty good apart from one thing.It's power supply is crap and so is it's case.The case's quality probably isn't your top priority but you MUST invest in a high-quality power supply.Your PC won't even start up with the unit you chose.

    If you use rebate's then this one is a pretty good deal.

    Or if you really want a good, future proof power supply you should buy this one instead.

    You could also upgrade the graphics card to a GTX 480.
    It's quite a bit more powerfull than the HD 6870 but you should only buy the GTX 480 if you buy the XFX power supply.The Corsair might not be powerfull enough.

    Or you could also buy the HD 7850 which is slower than a GTX 480 but it produces less heat, noise and consumes less power.

    And also your optical drive does NOT have 128GB Memory!It has 1-2 MB cache memory and that's it.
