You can buy the parts yourself for cheaper and higher quality. But you gotta build it. Or go to monarchcomputers.com and they will build it for you.

I think that computer would be fine for your needs. Although to get a better computer that would more than likely last longer and something that you could enjoy more, you could go with what vader has listed.

I would recommend the computer vader posted. The one you posted had some flaws in it, and you could do much better (vader's choice) for around the same price. To order things off the internet you need a credit card, and you don't have to order everything seperate, you can order it all at the same time, but if you wish to order it seperate you can.
