Ordered new pc, need to know something

hey, ordered new pc from local shop


intel Q6600 overclocked @ 3.0Ghz + good cooler
4gb corsair ddr2 ram
gigabyte GA-P35-DS4
Corsair HX 520watt
Gigabyte geforce 8800GT 512mb
Sharkoon Rebel 9 Value Edition case
500gb HD
Vista Home Premium 64-bit

urm do you think that this is a build to last, with upgrades only on gfx card and ram, to keep me on high setting on games over the next 2-3 years?

also i payed £770 for the pc, is it worth that much? (includes parts, 3 yr warranty, and labour for building pc)

:) help would be great

thats a gd price, i dare say u could have built that for alot cheaper but thats a really gd build, and no pc is built to stand the test of time, most computers become obsolite very quickly, but this has a really great graphics card so it will be able to play games over the next few years.

That's about as future proof as you can get at the moment without spending silly money.

You got a good price there, and I doubt you could actually build it yourself for much less.
