    just wondering if this pc is any good
    PC description:
    Honli Black/Silver Case with 550W PSU [HLC-502SB]
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 - 2.13GHz - (1066FSB/2MB Cache)
    Pioneer 18x DVD Super Multi Burner OEM [DVR-112DBK]
    Maxtor 320G 7200RPM SATA-II 8MB Cache [6A320E0]
    Genius Multimedia Keyboard & optical Mouse

    2G RAM DDR2 667Mhz Generic (1G X 2 )
    1000W Juster with subwoofer (3D-503)
    Click 2-point Surge Protector

    it costs $1389AUD which converts to about $1110USD
    i need it for mainly gaming, video editing, internet and other general stuff
    just wondering if this system is worth getting or any good?

    only problem with cases and power supplies is the PSU is usually not as good as the 550W it is rated at. But if it is that should be plenty

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 - 2.13GHz - (1066FSB/2MB Cache)
    That processor will do just fine

    Pioneer 18x DVD Super Multi Burner OEM [DVR-112DBK]
    Read up on the burner, make sure it can do all media types including DVD+R DL. Other than that Pioneer is said to make good burners.

    Maxtor 320G 7200RPM SATA-II 8MB Cache [6A320E0]
    Should work just fine

    Genius Multimedia Keyboard & optical Mouse
    Should also be fine

    XFX PCIe 7300LE Supp 512MB DVI/VGA/TV
    This card is a little weak if you plan on playing newer PC games, You should step up to at least a XFX PCIe 7600GT

    MSI P4M890M-L MainBoard
    would have to research the board and make sure it has possibility for upgrades in processor and more RAM

    19" Benq FP92W (Silver-Black)
    will do fine

    2G RAM DDR2 667Mhz Generic (1G X 2 )
    Should be ok, except for the fact that they list the brand as "generic"

    1000W Juster with subwoofer (3D-503)
    Click 2-point Surge Protector
    both should be fine.

    I am not sure what the prices are like there but for here that is a fair price for the system since it comes with the monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, and surge protector.
    For just the tower itself you could build a better system for less. But it would exclude the above and the DVD and Hard drive.
