Will it do alright to begin with though? If I use it for a month then it wasn't a waste of money and I won't have to set a memorial service for more wasted money. It's all about peace of mind at this point.

The thing that really ticks me off about this is I went to a company that built me a computer before and that computer is still running. But when this computer started having problems they wouldn't do more besides reformat the HD and send it back to me. Just make sure you don't send anyone to myAOpen.com. Waste of money and I'm kicking myself for not building one myself then.

Oh and is anyone else recommending Vista Home? I've just heard awful things about Vista and I love XP Pro.

your all set, your HD and one of your DVD drives are seta, all you'll have on your IDE port is one DVD and that is fine, I have one DVD still on IDE myself so using that stuff will be good, be kind of dumb to replace it actually. The stuff you picked out looks pretty good too but as stated the VGA will be the weak spot in the system.

The VGA will work though? At least for a bit? XP Pro vs. Vista? I already have XP Pro and love it.

It will work fine just be a tad behind the performance of everything else
