34.00 after rebate..if you want at a latter time add a better video card.
with any system with windows 4g is your min for a system to run without slowing down or blue screen from lack of ram. i would buy two kits and max the system out at 8g. with ram your better off using match kits or one match set of ram.
if your in high school or collage see if you can get the windows software edu discount.
