um... i'd say try to pick up 2Gb of RAM if you don't already have it. (can't tell from your specs).

UV cable sleeving, cheap and very effective.

9/10, although theres no mess from cables, it does look a little small. A new full tower case would do good. Im a full tower man, if it doesnt effect you then dont worry. Im also giving it a 9 cause i know what performance you have, if not, it would be a 7 or 8.

I would give that system a 10 out of 10, just becaues I think getting a FX-57 (the only chip better then the one you have, really) is a wast of money. I would get the second gig of RAM, though. I went from 1 to 2 and I'm never going back.

9/10 only because I haven't seen the system yet that will make 10/10.

Nope, MMO's and modern shooter games will most definitely use over 1 gb. Video encoding,movie editing,etc will also use over 1 gb. If you want to prove this to your self, disable your pagefile. When you see that you crash, you'll know it's because your system ran out of memory. Remember, your computer uses memory in this order and if it ever runs out, you'll crash.

L1 cache,L2 cache,system Ram, pagefile on hard drive.

This is also the order from fastest to slowest with each level varying dramatically in speed.
