  3. Dear Frankma, congratulations on buying a new system for your Son. Everything seems to be in place, but i hav a light nag on the part of Graphics card, as you could have got a more powerful ATI HD 4850 for $99, but otherwise, it is a good system build. A 1 TB hard drive would have been a better choice as its only slightly higher price than 500GB and has 32 mb cache.
  4. Overkill for light gaming and internet. Buying used is always a risky proposition at best.
