How old are the kids that this is being built for? if they aren't going to play intensive games on the computer like FEAR you can probably get away with and integrated video as long as it has 64mb video memory, just thinkin that could save a buck.

I say get hima s754 sempron 64 bit and overclokc it because they are god at that. then get a cheap case, 512mb ram, and a 6600 or 9600xt. It's not the bets but it is cheap and it will do for kids.

Apperciate your thoughts but the reviews on it dont impress me and I dont think that they'll notice if it has a handle ,but just the fact that they have a computer.
