    OK I was thinking of building a shuttle or buying an iMac but the other day I was on the phone at work with Dell service for some printer issues with my lap top, dude was real nice and during the driver reload I was telling him about my memory problems with my PIII and how I was looking at building a computer, and he told me what was causing it but then told me to punch in a number on the dell website and low and be hold I find this In the Outlet.

    XPS 410 Mini-Tower: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6300 (1.86GHz, 1066 FSB) Genuine Windows XP Media Center 2005:
    256 mb nVida Geforce 7300 LE Turbo Cache
    1 GB 667 MHz Ram
    16X DVD RW
    48X CD RW/DVD Combo
    250 GB HD

    Then I Find:
    Dimension E521 Small Mini-Tower: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2.0GHz) Genuine Windows XP Media Center 2005:
    It said no video card so I was going to put the one I bought for the old computer in there, but I think It came with an ATI 256 MB I need to check more
    1 GB 533 MHz Ram
    16X DVD
    48X CD RW/DVD Combo
    160 GB HD
    TV Tuner w/Remote
    Office 2003 Basic

    I threw in a 20 wide screen and some speakers for the XPS and 3 days later it all showerd up at the door. Battlefield Vietnam with all settings wide open dosent lag on either of the, These things rock.

    That is all
