I will either buy HP Pavilion Slimline s5310t with specs below for $400 or like to build a similar small case PC. Can experts render an opinion as to which parts (newegg etc) will be good for general surfing and photoshop CS4 work? or HP PC is comparable for the price?

This hp computer is a good value. You will have to add the $50 video card option to make it usable for modest photoshop work, however.
Appreciate the input very much, any specific video card recommendation from newegg?, rather newbie on these matters.
