    It's alright , not a big fan of Gigabyte mobos , you need some more RAM , 512 minimum , some more HD space probably , the video card is a bit lacking too but it's something to start from until you can afford more expensive indevidual components

    Really you'd be better off to look at an nForce2 based mobo and 2 x 256MB PC3200/3500 sticks of memory. :devil win

    It's pretty good. Just needs a little more ram. I have the same board as you do ;p

    I wanted an Nforce, but alas, no credit card..and there isnt such a thing as a good computer store out here. My next system will have an Nforce, with the biggest, meanest AMD processor I can find. :D

    I heard in a magazine (CPU) that nForce is optimized for 2700 RAM and not 3200, anyone else hear that?
