Default Check my potential computer specs plz

I'm building a computer for use in a medical office. Solid dependability is #1 concern, and then price is a close second. I don't care about video card performance and all that junk. Tell me what you think please:


- ASUS KT400 "A7V8X-X"
- AMD Athlon XP 2200+ "thoroughbred"
- Kingston 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-2700
- Samsung CD/DVD Drive Model SD-616EEP
- Sony floppy
- Seagate 40GB HD, Model ST340014A
- ANTECMid Tower Case with 350W Power Supply (is this enough power?)
- GeForce2 MX400 VCard

If I could cut costs anywhere, please feel free to suggest. Did I leave anything out? Already have monitor, keyboard, mouse..

Do they plan on backing up their computer daily? I work in a medical office and we use tape back ups to back up our data every 12 hours. For a PC that holds critical information its beyond critical.

One other quick question. Fans? It looks like the case comes with one 120mm. Looks like I should buy an other one to suck air in through the front grill. Any idea what size that would be?

Ah yes thanks for reminding me. They do back up everyday. In the current computer, they use a Zip100 drive. Could I just transplant that from the old case into the new one?

1- yes, an intake is a good idea. What model is the case? Im guessing solution series? If thats the case they use 120mm fans for intake.

2- Yes, you can transplant the zip drive so long as you have the IDE room.
