yes I do need a monitor, but I do not need an os as my friend has a copy of windows he used on his other computer but it crapped out on him. (dont ask what he did with the hardware) so as long as he uninstalls windows on teh old comp he can use it (legaly) on this new one right?

O and he will be using it for gaming, CSS and BF2 mostly.

Wow, 512 ram and integrated graphics?

It isn't a great computer and it is a terrible price.

Get a seagate hard drive from TigerDirect: they have a sale for 250 gb, and I think it's 80.00.
