thats pretty good. but for that price you could easily build your own comp. i do not recommend that pentium. rather... get an amd athalon processor (64 or xp) because its cheaper and just a better processor. 512 is good, but what will you be doing? gaming like doom 3, half life 2, etc? video editing? it all depends... i suggest 1 gb. itll put you far ahead of in memory usage. the graphics card is ok. i have that same one. of course, the 68000 ultra pwns, as well as the x850, but $$$. good sound. counter strike and all those game will run fine, but a lot better with the amd. built for gaming. the screen is a little too small and u should get an 17" but if your budget doesnt go with it, then dont. like i said, its all about your budget...

no no no. in my opinion.... dell sux. serioulsy. they use crappy parts and its not get a good company. only for like large buisness i guess are they good. and please edit your posts and not use a new post each time.... ok fist of all... you need a processor. amd = ownage. if you want a custom built comp by me or the others on cf, tell me. but if not, here's a good comp... http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16883102622
but thats $1000 with nothing else. however, there is also this: http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16883102612
its a little cheaper, $700. you can then get this screen http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16824005019
from lg and ur set. if you need a keyboard and all that... http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16823126131
will set u up nicely. that brings it out to...
933. but you want speakers so...
http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16836121118
and thats 44. so the total is $979. i think... haha. doing the math in my head so might be off by just a little. check to make sure. but thats under $1000 and amd is better. but if u want more.... ill try and build u a custom comp... but it might take a while... but other than that... yeha.

ok, the one for $700 has 120gig hard drive, and a 2.8 ghz processer, and the one that is just over $1,000 has a 3.2 ghz processer, and 160 gig hard drive, so the the $300 dollar price jup worth it, cause one of my friends says that you can really tell a difference in between the processer speeds, and i probley wont ever fill up the 160 gig drive.....so i guess what im getting to is, that the $300 dollar price jump isnt worth it
