Nice computer for only a 3100.


Can I ask how much that cost?


BTW, you might want to think about a graphics card. Maybe a 6600GT would do you just fine.

Well, if your only paying 400 dollars, thats a SWEET deal.

Anyways get a Gcard and it would be a great computer. How much more can you spend on this?

Dell have a habit of saving money by removing AGP and PCI-E slots.

Take a look and see if you can see one - it should be about lined up with the top PCI slot in the case, and it should either be brown or black.
