    If you are putting that monitor into the mix you will have big trouble staying under the $900 cap.

    However if the $900 does not include the monitor or OS you are on solid ground.

    Seems like you have a lot figured out already.

    Yea I have done a lot of research and the OS and monitor is not included in my $900 range. Thank you for your post and I will definitly consider it! :)
