yea, the specification you will get with that PC will be more than enough to power what you want to do

you will have no trouble doing the tasks you want

make shure you have a goot antivirus to protect your investment

i refuse to buy antivirus coz its just a plain rip-off

ummm what is good free anti-virus and anti-spyware programs for me to download.....a few would be great to keep my computer well protected

what is the deal with Vista?? all im hearing at Whirlpool is that you NEED 2GB RAM to run Vista or else there is serious lag and the comp will need fixing regularly and all things like that, but reality is no matter where u buy a computer from, they generally come with only 512MB RAM and 1GB is very pricey, yet im apparently getting ripped off with this comp

im very confused actually.....i will not be doing any internet gaming or high-power gaming etc so that is not a worry....ummm yer any feedback on these things!!!
