A thought... look for a fanless card to cut down on the noise the system makes.
True, but it's less expensive than what you had linked me to .

I'll see what I can find for a fanless one.

All right, well I'll see what they think about that price (I said I could get one for 'em for around $400...and with shipping, it's about $397 lol). Better than a prebuilt computer for the same price, I'm sure.

I would also consider an e2140 and oc it slightly. Then use the extra $20 on cooling and what not.

Eh, don't really wanna OC this system for them. They used their last one for 10 years till they were forced to upgrade to a new one (the one I'll build 'em), so I'd rather have this one last 'em for a while.
