I like your mom setup, Crazy Gamer. And I didn't realize the Shuttle came with integrated video.

If your mom's anything like my mom, I'd partition that drive with a seperate partition for the OS, (and set her My Documents folder to the second partition) so that you can reinstall it if things go messy.

what processor do you have for the mom system?
