Default Good Enough?

The pc i want. hp a1620y (intel)

Quote:
<> Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 HT Technology enabled 3.2GHz
<> 250GB 7200 rpm SATA Hard Drive
<>Drive 1 : LightScribe 16X DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti drive
<>Drive 2 : 16X max. DVD-ROM
<>9-in-1 memory card reader, 2 USB, 1 1394, audio
<>HP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
<>2GB DDR2-533MHz SDRAM (2x1024)
<>NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE, w/ TurboCache
<Price =$969.99>
Mostly it will be used for heavy web browsing(Whole lot of firefox tabs)
Photoshop (Very rarely)
And a few games (RTS and RPG)
All for about $1000 Dollars. If i had extra money i would get the Pocket media Bay. (I always get My pc reset every so many days)
So that would be Hard for me to afford but i would probally be able to get it. I need a lot of ram because firefox loves it. And Without Anything open my PC already uses 140MB ram. and i only have 256mb.(Yeah i get horrible preformance)
So i decided to stop spending money on games for my Consoles and get a newer pc in a few months and Think this is the best deal. Is it or does another big company sell cheaper?

For $1000 you can build a way better computer then that. You can make a Conroe build for that money.

Yes I agree with B1gapl about building... But if you dont want to or dont know how to then that system will be fine for you...

if you have any building experience at all then you can get much better quality stuff from somewhere like www.newegg.com and build a much heftier pc for the same money and prolly even less imho.
