    Fine
    Graphics should fit, what you should worry about more is the ram / hdd. Neither are decent, you should be aiming at some seriously better ram if you want to make good use of the unlocked CPU and the HDD is just horrible. WD Caviar Black or Samsung's Spintpoint F3 are the least you coud get, if not an SSD

    Doubtful
    At least 7,200rpm hard drive.
    Might as well buy a SSD right now.
    The price are about the same cause the flood in Thailand greatly increased HDD prices.

    Caviar Black are too expensive right now $220 in Australia, ill probally get a SSD later to make up for the bad HDD. I just going to overclock my CPU, to 3.7ghz and probally get a Cooler Master Tx 3 or something, the only thing im worried about is the GPU not fiting in the case, everywhere i read people say something different. One guy said that his AMD 6850 wont fit and another guy said a GTX 580 will fit -.- two contrictating statements....

    It was 'pro duct' for both of them.
    Pretty sure that is a space.
    You should get an SSD as the HDD prices sky rocketed due to the flood in Thailand..
