You would be better off deciding what you want to do with the computer first, and then going from there. If all you want to do is surf the internet and send an email or two, that system is overkill.

You need to be aware that Vista comes in two flavours, and as the machine you've linked to comes with 4Gb of memory, its most likely its Vista 64-bit. Vista 64-bit has very patchy application support so you may find a lot of stuff won't actually run.

Thanks for your reply m8.
By saying overkill is that a good thing? can having too much ram be a bad thing?

Very much top of the line. It has Vista premium, and as Neil stated, "WHAT DO YOU PLAN THE COMPUTER FOR"?
This could be way too much.
You may not like Vista. Vista 64 (if thats what it is) support is poor.

Gaming will be a problem at this time.
Encoding, again program support for 64-bit may be a problem at this time depending on what you want to do.
Multimedia, again depends what type of multimedia you're referring to.

Please be more specific. Gaming could be anything from daily doses of Spider Solitaire to 9hr stints of World of Warcraft. Encoding could be just MP3s or video. Multimedia could be just playing CDs or making music.

I will maybe play 3 hr every other day of games, encode video files to dvd, rip dvd's, listen to music.
Are programs like dvd shrink, dvd decrypter and anydvd functional on vista 64bit?
