Yea I was going to bump it up closer to 4 gigs. The processor was a result of getting a full computer (DVD-RW), XP Pro, 80 gig Hard drive, Key board, Mouse, etc) for $86 shipped to me. I thought that was pretty cheap for a 6ghz Pentium 4.

Get this recertified XFX HD 4850 (it is refurbished) however, it has a better cooler and it does have a double lifetime warranty
Thanks for the link. I have a ATI Radeon in my HP Laptop.
