    If you're getting that complete system for $200, then I'd say to have at it.  Some games won't run that well for lack of single-threaded CPU performance, but pretty much everything should at least be playable.  And many games will run very well.

    If you're just getting some selected parts and then having to buy others to build around it, then it's likely not such a good idea.

    The motherboard almost certainly requires DDR2 memory, which means that you can't plug DDR3 into it.
