Will it be faster than what you have, probably a bit due to the CPU. The video card in it is slower than what you currently have. It is definitely not €500.00 faster. At best that Intel system might be worth about half that much.

If you're willing to spend that much you can find much better. Or if you want to build your own post up some links of sites available to you and we can make some recommendations on a system far better than the one you mentioned.

Stormy is right, you can do much better. Although you cant buy from here, take a look at this rig for less. Or look at some of these just to get some ideas.

I'll second the idea of building your own. The knowledge on these forums is phenomenal and will save you a lot of money.
