Thanks in advance for any advice.

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
