Not bad, I'd wait just a little bit longer because AMD is dropping their prices a lot so you could get a better deal.

Over a month away 7/24, but the single core processors have droped, so your good.

ram sucks, get a dual channel kit. Don't know your budget though.

Aspires bundled psu kinda blows chunks, might think about a decent psu.

Dvd is good, hd is good.

Don't know anything about lcd's so I won't try to make a judgment.

errr ohh you have no video card listed.
Since you said your using it for movies and music, then you might want to think about a soundcard, as integrated sometimes sounds awful.
