ALL NEW Intel Conroe E6600 Core2Duo - Thats the best processor out

Genuine Intel D965 Mainboard - i assume you mean motherboard (what all the components plug into

2Gb 2048Mb DDR II Dual Channel PC5300 - Ram makes things run Fast - Youve got a lot so you r ok there

320 Gb Serial ATA-2 16M 7200RPM HDD - your hard drive its what everything is stored on - your is big (like enought for your whole lifetime)

256Mb DDR3 GeForce 7600 PCI-E 16X - graphics card (how good the quality of what your looking at is)

1680x1050 Hi Res LCD Flat Display - screen size

Intel Fast 10/100/1000 GLAN - this is the modem spec - its good

FireWire Port for Digital Video - firewire port is just a connectivity port (such as USB)


Any More?

the Nvidia GeForce 7600 is a really good graphics card honestly -

are you gonna be playing games on it (like Battelfeild or Counter Strike)

it retails about £116.50 - so convirt that to $$$$$$

you cant just convert it from gbp to dollars there are shipment costs. I would add a little bit bigger harddrive and I would add a 8800gts as it is a better videocard and supports dx10 which are what new games are going to come as in the future you need vista to play dx10 games though.
