ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Ideally it would have a nice sized hard drive, and not get too warm. I'm using this as research, as my mom said figure out a proposal to get a nice computer. We've got a Compaq with 2GB of RAM and a Pentium Dual Core, and I just want something a little more powerful that I can say I built.
I like that Build. It's similar to something I made up earlier on in my research. Two quick questions. One, does the motherboard have on-board digital audio? And two, Can the monitor screen size be changed as long as I keep to a certain Resolution? (And what would that res be?)
