mm, not the best. integrated audio & video work, but arent ideal for anything, especially if you take your multimedia seriously. and high-quality video or dvd playback might become laggy with that slower cpu and minimal ram. and if you're going to be downloading alot of that 'multimedia', 160gb is going to fill up fast.

its a decent, cheap comp, but not what i'd build/buy for anything other than surfing

well, depending on what youve got already and what you want to reuse of it, youll need:
motherboard
processor
ram
hard drive
case (with psu, if not youll need to buy a compatible one)
(optional) graphics card
(optional) sound card

if youve already got one, you can reuse keyboards, mice and monitors (assuming that te one youre building is replacing the one you have now)

if you want to straight replace, you can reuse your current Hd as well

check out newegg.com, and make sure that the motherboard/psu/cpu/ram is all compatible

for example, if you buy a socket 939 mobo that supports ddr-400 ram and takes 20+4 psu connection, make sure you get ddr-400 ram, a socket 939 processor, and a psu that has 20+4 connectors

well, i cant help you there, i build all mine. that acer looks ok if you arent gonna be doing anything too serious on it. but dont expect to be able to use your ram on the new comp, if its too old, it wont be compatible.
