I thought so. I'm just attracted to that PC because of the CPU.

So I'm going to build a gaming PC with either an AMD Phenom II X4 955 or Intel i3-2100. I still need more time to think because of the place that I'm living is not the same as you guys that live in the US. In Brunei, PC components are very expensive and only 15%-20% of the PC stores sells AMD components. But I like the AMD processor and mobo because it is cheap and just good for gaming. I'm not saying that Intel is not good for gaming. I just need more time to figure out which is best for me and my budget is around BN$1300. So it's around $1000 US dollars.

I imagine going for 2500K + P67/Z68 motherboard will cost you a fortune since you are in foreign country. Intel H61 is a fine motherboard. Can you post your ATX chassis? Included PSU isn't always in good quality so we need to know about it. I do object to GT 520, it is by no means, a gaming GPU. Does it come with Windows 7 in it?
HDD as boot drive is not that bad. Increase in RAM speed is very negligible in real time usage.
Or you can build it on your own, tell us your budget.

I'm not gonna buy it yet though. In the leaflet, it only says that "ATX chassis with 600W power supply". It does come with Windows 7.

It doesn't really do them any good as other things run off that frequency, also it wouldn't really make much difference if you did raise it.

Then the only problem is the PSU and GPU. If you are committed to this pre-build get 6850 as you've said earlier and get a quality PSU between 400W to 500W (do tell us PSU first before replacing it though, it may be a quality unit after all).

^^ That is a list of quality PSU.

OP, I'm from Brunei too and the PC store there are BAD ! Prices are extremely high because there are no competition in the country.

Best is to buy the pc components separately and building it yourself. Saving you at least $200 and with good brand names components, you can't go wrong. Most important is the PSU, the one you listed down has "no brand" which can end up destroying some of your pc components if it fails.

I suggest you order one from Malaysia or Singapore.

my sig rig was real cheap the motherboard processor and ram was $350 usd and i got a ssd for $100 usd and a power supply for $120 usd and the case is your choice you dont need a super expensive case just one that works and you could get a good video card like a gtx550ti or 6870 for around $170 usd and then a hard drive of your choice in size for data and an optical drive for around $30 usd
