Thats a good deal for $800. i wouldn't change anything from the current configuration, i would upgrade the CPU,and GPU in the future.

I am a hardware guy not a software guy but i try to help.

Seems like a good deal but more detail is needed. You supplied little or no info about the power supply, RAM, video card, or hard drives. How about make/model & individual specs for each?

Intel doesn't produce socket 1366 chips anymore the only thing he can upgrade in the future is the video card.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.
