Looks like a solid computer. The only thing I would recommend is upgrading to More memory, I hear vista is quite a memory hog. Is it offered from HP or is it through a reseller like, Wallmart, tigerdirect, newegg.. Etc...

Edit: :thumbsup: Welcome To BC

Edit 2: after reading oldf@rt's post I remembered Compaq is owned by HP now. Woops!!

Looks solid, however I would max out the ram by installing two 1 gig of DDR2 PC4200. I looked up the specs at HP, it uses shared memory for video. It can use up to 256meg of regular memory.

It does have the capability to add a PCI-E video card, but some of those need more power than the 300 watt power supply that is installed from the factory.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
