I have to agree... That will definately do...
The speakers I'm a bit iffy with. You should go with surround sound speakers

Welcome to the forum! Computer looks good. Is this a "buy it as it comes" type of deal, or can you make any changes? If you can make any changes, I would go with a dvd burner/cd burner combo rather than a dvd reader/cd burner (if that is what it comes with)....shouldn't be much more money.

Yeah, and if you do want to go for surround, I'd invest in a better sound card than the onboard one you'll get with the system, though that'd do for now. It may not produce as much clarity as a real Creative Soundblaster would though.

Make sure if you did get a sound card, it supported the amount of speakers you were going to get before purchasing.
