Default Best Buy's $600 Media Center PCs

I need a new Computer

Lately I've seen ads for Best Buy selling $600 Media Center PCs with Athalon 64s and a Gig of Ram a seemingly Decent ATI card Tons of Media ports and so on.

Are these PCs worth Checking out?

well what do yuo want. list the parts and we will all find whats good for you and btw newegg probably can build that system for less then 600 dollars. and bestbuy uses very cheapy components just like dell and the rest of those computer makers. and if you build your own you can build and pick out the parts that you want
