:| whoa deja vu. i think all that is a bit expensive for $115. i would look at RAM and a burner if possible and then think about a new GFX card later, perhaps after swapping out that celeron. but you'll probably be able to watch dvd's and such with the integrated graphics for the moment.

oh, man... the dude with the mario avatar needs to do some reading on this website for like a month, then start over. BUT, if I had to work with that machine, buy your DVD rom (or burner) 30 or 40 dollars, and the rest should go to RAM.

Celeron 2.93< AMD Sempron 3000 < AMD Sempron 64 3000 < AMD Athlon 64 3000+ < AMD Athlon 64 3200+ < AMD Athlon 64 3200+ OVERCLOCKED. Dude, do some reading before you start spankin these guy's processors.
