Hey I have to build a computer for this guy who will be using it in his deli to run 4 monitors. Basically each monitor would be running a powerpoint presentation to show different menus. This machine doesn't need too much, just looking for something cheap, but capable of supporting 4 monitors... so here are the specs I put together, let me know what you think...
Ultra nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit - Pre-Assembled, Ultra Black Defender ATX Mid-Tower Case, 400 Watt XVS Modular Power Supply
Intel Celeron Dual Core E1200 Processor HH80557PG025D - 1.60GHz, 512KB Cache, 800MHz FSB, Allendale, Dual-Core, OEM, Socket 775, Processor

I didn't really look elsewhere besides tigerdirect. I mean, most of the parts are pretty cheap here, so saving 3 dollars on a hard drive, or cd rom isn't going to be much of a difference. The big things are the barebone kit and 2 vid cards.
What do you guys think tho? Unless you can find something substantially cheaper, do you think these parts are alright to handle what I need?
