What i do like about the system.
What i don't like.
It's not PCI-E and integrated graphics usually isn't too good.
they don't state what motherboard is used( could be a cheapie)
If its AC97 sound its lousy.
its only got a 350 watt PS.
If i were to choose from tiger direct i would get this and build it like this.http://www.tigerdire.....ku=I69-2119 F
Then i would buy these at the same time.http://www.tigerdire...sp?EdpNo=586829
buy 2 sticks of this ram http://www.tigerdire...p?EdpNo=1477509http://www.tigerdire...p?EdpNo=1647585http://www.tigerdire...78&Sku=M17-7500
Then go to newegg and order this sound card.http://www.newegg.co...N82E16829102178
Since you really like the music the Augidy sound card is a must.
Now i count up $465 here. You dont have a PCI-E graphics card yet but it can be installed when you want to. You may like the ATI radeon 200 on-board graphics. It is just my opinion but i think this is a much better computer than the one you mention. Today newegg has a Evga 6800 256MB PCI-E video card for $125. The NEC dvd-rw lets you burn CD's and DVD's. 1 gig of memory is perfect with XP. For a bit more money you can get a SATA 250 or 300 gig HD instead of the maxtor IDE HD. If you must have a pentium 4 instead of the celeron newegg has a P4 3.0 for $177 and you could possibly sell the celeron on ebay for $60-70.
Yes, you will have to build this computer yourself. It is not hard and if you read up on the net you can do it. Heres a good start.http://www.pcmech.com/byopc/index.htm
I built my first computer years ago with a pentium 3-800 new processor. It has been so much fun that now i am constantly building a new computer. As soon as i get done with one i start looking for something new to build. I just built a athlon 3000 tower for a friend and now have bought a Aspire X/Qpack for my next intel project.
