I'm on my 5th computer build but I do have to comment on that video card. It makes very little sense to me to have a quad core with such a weak video card that is a couple years old. If you're intent on saving money at least get into the nvidia 7800 or 8600. Definitely the 8600 or higher if you're using vista to utilize up and coming dx10 applications.
On a side note, where are you guys buying your hardware? I'm used to building in the US where I have everything shipped but I'm at a loss as to where to find good hardware whether it be store bought or via mail.
the 8800 GT or higher isn't a weak card. check this out for the rankings of all the vid cards based on performance.

it doesn't include the 9600 or 9800 or the ati counterparts yet though.
you got me.. I was totally thinking of the old nvidia 9600 series from a few years back and not the new cards. my bad. Oh and any speculation on where to buy hardware around here?
