Change the CPU to this :
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116198
will run much cooler on stock about 29c.
and pick another drive SAMSUNG is not that good.
This mobo also:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131545

that way you use the newer ram and just incase you also go for windows 64

Nice... That's not too bad, actually. Mine only goes by 2-3. But then again, I have a load of crap on my pc. AH well.

u could LIVE with a celeron but i think u would be much happier with a P4, the comp u listed looks a lot better than the one the other guy suggested, what u should do is point out to ur parents that the comp u listed is only a little bit more expensive but 5X the performance and talk about all the technical details so they know what ur talking about
