Hmmm, well you've done it the wrong way round, i'd have asked first. :)

Got a link to the pc you ordered?

Only a 450w PSU isn't a good start tbh....

Hmmm, when did you order it? I'd cancel it and go else where, that isn't all that in my opinion. Very limited in upgrade ability too....

Well i mean, i got the PC for free from my buisness, So i guess i could use some of the parts from my current PC to upgrade it, But on a Slight note Is it better than my current PC? even if it is by a slight note i dont mind, just really want to know

Honestly?

Well going by what you have posted above.... The CPU is obviously better, i7's are good chips.

The rest of it? Not so much.

The motherboard in the old system is a good board, The DS3 is still considered a good base for the E and Q series CPU's.

If i was you i'd have gone out and go a Q6600 quad or similar, then gone out and got a new GPU. for the money you spent on the 'new' pc you could have done a decent upgrade to the old one.

Is its going to be used for gaming?
