I want to know if this is a good processor:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103257
AMD Athlon X2 4050e Brisbane 2.1GHZ Socket AM2 Processor

I am considering purchasing this computer which includes the processor above:
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=TS...7-R&cat=SYS

It seems like it is a nice computer for 200 bucks. The motherboard is the ASUS M2N68-LA. Would that motherboard be good? It has a dual core processor and supports PCI Express X16 graphics cards which is really convincing for such a cheap price. I just have one question.

What does HP Debranded mean? I need to know what that means before purchasing the computer. I am also aware that the computer has no operating system installed. Would I be able to load Windows XP on this system without RAID drivers since im only trying to install XP on the one single 250 GB SATA drive that comes with the computer.

Looks like my Compaq, except mine came with an operating system, 320gig HD, Intel Dual Core processor, and was NEW for a little over a $100 more.

The asus website doesnt have my specific motherboard model. It has the M2N68-AM but not the M2N68-LA. Would it be ok to just use the drivers for the M2N68-AM?

That board is made for HP/Compaq, it seems: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...cname=c00906129

Probably best to use their drivers on their systems.
