Everything seems to come with monitors etc these days so you best bet is to try and build your own or check over on ebay.

Yeah, my Computer was an Advent Base unit; I didn't see the point in getting just another monitor even if it was a nice Metalic Blue Colour.

Even though the metalic blue is nice i love my case as well cause it is the blue color i don't think i will change it . Go for advent if you want good base units.

I found XP Pro for 20, I liked the extra User capabilities, and I can use it for any other Computer that needs it however many times, so I got it; that along with Office.
