Well, that certainly wouldn't be a bad system at all (I just rebuilt my girlfriends pc with the same Asus mobo).
Looking at some of the hardware they're quoting you on, aside from the case and CPU, virtually everything on the list is at least 1 year old or more ( Creative Lab Sound Blaster Live Value 5.1 ... I bought one of those in 2001 !!!).
Don't get me wrong, the rig as quoted would probably give you good (but not spectacular) performance for your hard earned money. But, I think with $1500 and a little research on the net here, you could hand pick components that will give you more bang for the buck instead of lining someones pockets for older hardware.
Just my 2 cents. Lets see what everybody else thinks. Good Luck.
yea the only things in worried about really is if its good for gaming, like the proc. , graphics card, and stuff like that, not too much about the speakers. also im going to get the amd athlon 64 3200 proc not the one thats listed here.
A64 won't fit A7N8X (any version), I recommend the MSI K8N Neo

Not really. An A64 3000+ is $206 and definately faster than a XP 3200+ which is ~$30 cheaper. Even the A64 2800+ is a better performer especially for games, and its cheaper than the XP 3200+. No brainer really.
