nice but if i was you id get a bigger psu 380w gonna be to low when you get a strong video card might be to low for the 6200 even. Most need a 400-500 now. Id also leave out the network card the motherboard has onboard gigabit lan.

Everything in their will be nice, but yeah the graphics card will need to be updated. The Power Supply will be fine for now, but like Bal3wolf said, you will need to upgrade. I have that very same case and all I can say is it keeps EVERYTHING cool, it has the best ventalation I've ever seen in a case. But mind you I also put in another 80mm fan on the side, but even without that it will keep it nice and cool :)

ya we always go to lan partys lol i never lag and my pc gets hammerd by everyone i have alot of wanted files spread out accross 4 drives my hds will be hammerd but my game drive is on another ide cable so it runs fine and no lag. Guess depends on the onboard gigabit you got to. Also sence i have a p4 with ht i probly wouldnt feel it even if it spiked up cpu usage alot.
