    Price is just around there if I were to DIY the exact same config myself. Since they throw in the free keyboard and antivirus, should be ok. Though I wouldn't pay for vista and wouldn't want norton antivirus....

    Get the 64 bit OS.
    Add another 4GB of RAM as well

    Though if you are using it for gaming, an overclocked E-8400 and above would probably do better for cheaper

    64-bit Windows is still unfortunately very picky over which software it'll work with.
