    18X DVDRW
    512 MB ATI RADEON HD4530...
    WIndows Home Vista

    It's a computer already made and selling in the store
    I wont be gaming. But, probably watching youtube videos, dvds, and multitasking alot (opening up like 3-5 browsers+msn at the same time)

    Make sure your new comp has atleast windows 7.

    Yeah you don't really want vista on it. I would make sure whatever you do get has a 64bit OS too otherwise that 8gb ram is useless.

    I would have to respectfully disagree with you on this. I have found that while building a high-end PC yourself is cheaper, low-end PCs are cheaper from some of the major retailers, unless you are able to reuse most of your old PC.

    That being said, the low-end PCs (in my experience) are more hassle than they are worth. Personally, I build a fairly heavy-duty rig every 3-4 years because I want a higher-end computer without the expense (relatively speaking).

    that is actually a kick ass price for those specs. I need something like that to run full blown GNS3 labs, but what brand is it? id rather go with Dell. My duo core 2.4ghz , 4gb vista 64bit laptop has problems running more than 4 to 5 routers.
