Oh, sorry, you're faster than me. That system looks okay, but I'm afraid that if you're grandfather wants something "big"(which I'm reading a bit as "shiny" right now) It won't intice him. And if he's concerned about "support", he may not want to go with something he hasn't heard of without a really good pitch.

I bought an ABS system about 4 years ago and it was a pretty good system.
I still say build it yourself or order from monarch.

all of our computers are dells, except for the one that i just built a few days ago. overall, for my family dells are great comptuers that are good for what your grandpa needs, but for gamers and people who know more about computers, i don't think dell would be the way to go. but for your grandpa, yeah get a dell, their custromer service isn't THAT bad, and hopefully you won't need it.
