I just looked over em real quick, looked ok to me. But you have to take into the price other things too, like power supply, case, the works. Those don't come real cheap either. Then there's software, speakers, mouse + keyboard. . .All of a sudden your cheap pc is pretty expensive!

Good luck!

I agree with T don't forget to factor in other equipment.

The only thing I noticed is that the hardrive is IDE. Since you only have one IDE channel that will be used for the DVD drive you will have to put your hardrive in a SATA channel.

I agree with Klindaroo, not only will it free up the IDE for the optical unit, the SATA drive is faster. If you ever decide to add another SATA hdd you won't have to configure them as master and slave as you do with ATA hdds.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
