TigerDirect has similarly equipped desktops starting at $99.99 refurbished. At $150 you can get a larger hard drive and Windows 7 (especially since XP is no longer supported by Microsoft)

You don't want XP if the kids will be doing online gaming. XP is not supported by MS and therefore there is no support with IE Explorer either. I am needing a new computer because I am having problems with my XP and IE. It isn't worth it, I would go for the Windows 7 computer instead.
