dude... just go to newegg.com and build your computer. I bet you could get all that for about the same price as well as having greater expandability

DO NOT GET THE DELL.

Dell uses very inexpensive and generic parts.

Try this company instead,

www.cyberpowersystems.com

They have a very good track record and 3 year warranties. Plus they use major brand parts. You will get ripped off buying a Dell.

Thanks for the input and links guys. Oh, and the box is sealed brand new...so it should still have warranty. Thanks again.

dont buy that...
no agp slot
and DELL does use inexpensive parts...
warrenty for new part replacement is only for 30 days...
after which its refurbished (repaired) parts...
warrenty doesnt cover data back up and data loss in case of hdd or xp crash..
returning or exchange will drive u crazy in DELL
basic warrenty is only for 1 yr and doesnt under any condition have home or onsite tech support..
a full system teardown is over the phone..
other websites metioned here r much better
