I am on a 10 year old compaq presario and want to get a new desktop, not really for gaming but just be able to multi task and watch vids / movies. Found this on newegg for $468.49 but I am not sure what to look for in ram / motherboard etc.

You need a DVD writer too? Not bad but some parts like the HDD and PSU are not very good.

PSU is ... OK, I guess. The included hard drive makes it a no-go for me.

The larger Seagate 7200.11 drives had serious firmware problems.
