Basically, you've gotten quite good advice here, but I still have a couple of points to make. First thing, you are not going to be able to get a 1.6 meg hard drive that is not an antique...I think the requirements must have meant 1.6 megabytes of free space
on the hard drive. These days you don't usually get less then 30 Gigabytes (one gigabyte being 1000 megabytes). Second, the only think you seem to need that's above the basics is the 64 megabyte video card. (many are 32). I would advise you to make sure that you do not purchase anything with integrated graphics, or with "Shared RAM" (a term used in Dell advertisements). Thirdly, while Dell does have nice support and warrenty plans, the actual Technical Support is limited, full of hours of waiting on hold, and not all that supportive. Best place for support is a forum like this.
