If I could purchase a warranty for it, with the same coverage as retail, I wouldn't hesitate..

Ah, thanks for the link..

I'll be visiting a computer show held at Sports Plus with some friends in June, so I'll see then if I can find anything for a cheaper price.. which I probally will as they always have very generous prices there.

If all else fails, saving up some money for an awesome computer would not kill me..

Question: Is it reccomended I get a Floppy Disk..? Is it needed for any installations early on..?

Add this to the list..
NEC FD1231H-302 Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive - $6.99
URL: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16821152005

Also, I checked PriceGrabber.com but each copy thats cheaper seems to be from a scary resource.. so does anyone know where I could get XP Home or XP Pro for a cheap price?

I might be able to get it cheaper at the computer show, but if not, I'll get this as its a good price.
