Thanks in advance for any advice.

  1. actually you know what? you can get ncix to assemble it for 50 bucks and it comes with anti-virus and windows 7. cheaper than paying for the OS. just add assembly to the shopping cart at ncix.com. they do a very good job.

    ncix prices arent the cheapest but you can price match
  2. the prices are more or less correct. check out the ncix sale banner for more great prices
