Um.... GO....

What is the purpose of your post? Seems like you are just saying "I am buying this".....

are you looking for alternative options for the same price point? what?

I suppose the videocard would meet your needs for minimal gaming. You don't really need a good card to just browse the internet, as long as you're not going to view or edit high-resource animations, movies, etc. There's no fan on it though so things may get a little hot if you're using it for a while.

Wouldn't know anything useful to say about that monitor. Looks alright.

I am not familiar with the quality of Acer LCD's, but you obviously know that you are getting what you are paying for with the video card.... $40.... if you are going to want to upgrade that video card again anytime soon, you would probably be best off saving that $40 and putting it towards something a little more powerful....

What does the rest of your rig consist of? What is your budget?
