    Specs:
    AMD64 X2 6000+ @3.248 Mhz , ECS MCP61PM-AM MoBo , APEVIA TURBO LINK 500 WATTS PSU , Windows Vista 32 Home Premium SP1 , SAPPHIRE HD3650 512MB GDDR3 PCIE 904/999 , 3 GIG PC2 5300 , WESTERN DIGITAL 500 GIG SATA , REALTEK HD 7.1/LOGITECH Z-2300 2.1 THX SERIES 200 watt RMS , ACER AL1751 LCD HDTV 17"

    Mods:
    Not much just upgraded the GPU and PSU. Tucked away the cables as much as I could without taking it apart Had a rounded IDE cable from my last puter to put in this one. This is a cheap replacement. My g/f bought this on clearance at Circuit City for $450 the card $59 and the PSU $20. Not bad Im really not into PC gaming except for UT2004.

    please be kind in your votes im not good at this but i try

    Nice system... but 8/10 and 9/10? I wouldn't give it that high of a rating. Always got to leave a bit of room at the top for the next system.

    Well, someone gave me a really crappy vote. But do you know what? What other people think usually is not important -- except for when they are telling you not to jump.

    Thanks man!

    Your hardware is good, Have you thought about buying a $20 case from newegg, you would have better airflow for you hard drive, because the case you have now, from gateway is design for your hard drive to overheat & fail.

    just because its a replacement that doesnt mean u shouldnt do some modding on it. even a simple wire management would be nice 3/10 for now
