There's an eMachines at the local walmarts for around $500 comes with a P4 3.0Ghz, 160GB HD, 512MB RAM, 64MB Onboard Video, DVD/CD Burner, 9-in-1 Media Reader, 19" Widescreen, and Windows XP Home. Just thought your parent's might like something like that, my parent's sure did.

but they want a 19" LCD and Widescreen too.

I told them Widescreen is more for gaming but they just like it more its accually cheap to get the widescreen

edit: btw I think im going to go with that motherboard that tall suggested. Looks good and cheaper with better onboard video.

Also I dont know why but the other monitor that is like mine but with speakers and $5 cheaper looks like its not a widescreen when you compare it to the one i had. but it still says widescreen so if its cheaper i think ill go with that one.
