Switch the processor to Intel Core i5 2500k and probably go for the GTX 570 instead of the 460 and you will be set for quite a while.

I would agree; but he is buying this second hand, not from a website.

Buy this right now. It's a very good system for a very low price. And no, the GFX card is not slow - it'll play everything to date near or at max settings.

Got screwed by eBay

Had winning bid, but then wasn't notified until after bidding finished that we were outbid

That sucks. With eBay, I'd never rely on any notifications. I wouldn't even bet on being logged in while I'm not seeing the bid confirm button.

Everything looked right, Even loaded the page after the time stamp on the bid and it still said we were winning :\

That's a shame Deverz, better luck next time man! If you ever consider buying parts for a desktop, stop by here first since we have people with good understanding!

I knew it was a good upgrade, Just getting 2nd opinions :)
Also it appealed to me because I'm an Intel and nVidia man

I'm trying to avoid going Here. They're the cheapest shop in Australia but they offer little to no after sales support

Individual Parts

Pre-Built Systems

I do have the knowledge to build it myself, I'm just not up to date on what's worth it and what's not.
