    I'd get the Western Digital JB-series drives, and make sure it has RAID capability, if I were you.. but its not a biggie, the Seagate's are good drives too
    It's also got integrated sound, but if your not an audiophile, its not really necessary to upgrade that...
    The case looks like crap, but then again, most OEM's are...
    It also dosn't specify the motherboard (very important) or the powersupply (not so important)

    I'm spoiled, so those are mainly minor things, coming from a white-box/self-builder... for an OEM machine, it looks pretty decent

    Actually the PSU is VERY important.. But anyhow $1700 is quite high for that computer.. At least that's my opinion. And that cpu is not performing anywere near it's pricetag so you should choose a cheaper one like the 2500+ which can be oc pretty good and probably perform equal if not better than that 3000+ one..

    It's your $$$ so you decide but I still think you should build your own computer..

    I'd also be inclined to go for PC3200 as a minimum with that CPU and I'd make sure that the motherboard was an nForce2 based one but really RAID is unnecessary for your needs.

    Well I'm sorry but that mobo is no good this days, you want to go for an Nforce2 solution just like Wiggo mentioned. They are quite cheap and perform mutch better than that 400 chipset.

    In fact the nForce2 mobo with only 1 stick of memory will give ya the same performance as the KT400 but I don't know about that PSU so ya'll have to check that out ya self though at least 200w across the combined 3.3 & 5 volt rails is a must for stability (usually requires a 400w PSU for that rating).
