uhh...its not very good compared to the dell PC's. $499.99 for a p4 3.0 hyperthreading, 1 gig memory, 250 gig hdd, a 17inch LCD, not CRT (or 19 inch i forgot), and a printer.

i thought that AMD's were better and i dont need a printer, but that would be nice

i agree. building is more fun and u can learn lots from it. if u have hyperthreading then u can run lots of programs at once and thre will be dramatically less lag. a very helpful technology

buying more ram cost more and doesnt have that much of a noticable effect. hyper threading is very noticable.
