overall that setup doesnt look too bad for what ur needing it for in my opinion except for a few things. first u stated that the app. ur gonna b running needs a minimum of 512mb of ram to run properly. this setup ur considering only has 128mb so thats a definite issue. im definitly not a fan of integrated video with shared memory, boooo but i have no idea what app. ur running so i dont kno if its at all graphic intensive but for something needing a minimum of 512 to run i would say it is. so i would b getting something without onboard video and getting a separate video card. like tommy posted u get an nivdia card pretty cheap. the one i have isnt very good but i still play very cpu intensive games with no problem and i believe mine is about 70 bux. to u other guys reading this , one other thing that is confusing me is that it states that the board is upgradeable to 2 gigs of ram but only having one DIMM, i dont think ive ever seen a 2 gig memory stick so how is that possible? so ur looking at the 400 bux for each of the machines, then about 60 x2 for the 512 of memory for each of them,if ur gonna keep the onboard video.i think u could disable the onboard video and get separate video cards but y pay for something ur never gonna use. also ur gonna have to take them apart to install the memory and video cards if thats a factor for u, its not hard at all.
im not a big hardware guy yet so other ppl correct me if im wrong plz
