you see, the younger kids have better eye hand coordination..

Hey! Let's not talk about kids operating missle silos like that... I'm on a covert mission, you see?


... If this is really appropriate, I doubt, but I'm just kidding.

yeah, seriouisly. when i was 10 i was playing with batman action figures. so unless today's getrneration is getting outta hand, i suggest he tone it down. i mean its cool if he wants that good stuff but save a ltitle money and have a good system later when he's older. i doubt other 10 year old will be jealous of his system.

even 786mb is a little much for a ten year old, just get him some nice 512, like some corsair XMS or Geil Ultra, Or muskin High Perf lvl II.

Yea dude, sometimes when you build a system for someone else you start thinking like it's your system but you ned to think..This kid is 10, what does he really need? 512 is fine and he doesnt need a great gfx card...get a better processor witht he money you will save down grading.
