Default Any thoughts on these, all help would be great

So my 8 year old compaq bit the dust a few days ago, so I have been searching around a bit for a new PC. I found this deal on Newegg, do you think this is a good deal?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Field=0&Page=1


The only things I do on this PC is play emulators, surf the net/chat, LOTS of Music (4 Hard Drives). So do you think those would work for me? If anyone has the time and would like to build me a CHEAP PC, something in the range of say $250-$300. Included in the price is the OS. Any help would be great

I have all the HD's, Case, and PSU already.

If you were trying to link us to your cart, it did not work. Try and find the links to the products.

Should I get XP or wait and get Vista? Newegg has a deal if you buy XP Pro you get a discount on Vista
