MSE is the Anti virus we recommend the most. It's free and uses less system resources then the name brand ones.

The OS disk may not be included as I'm not sure. If the system is preloaded with the OS you will need to make a set of recovery disks as soon as you get the system running. The instructions to do that should be in the users manual with the system.

ok and the graphics chip again the intel 4500 chipset.

could you tell me how i will know what games will work with this? cause when i read the system requiremnts it doesn't say intel 4500. it usually says ati radion and the other cards.

and last question. this ocmputer since it already has the OS and everything installed does this mean it is ready to go? i just plug it all in and im good. and where can i buy the OS disc for this system incase i ever need it.

Video should work with no problem.
As far as the OS I don't know if they will ship the OS installation disk or a recovery disk or a recovery partition is on the hard drive already.
You should be able to plug it in and go.

Buying the monitor first because the system may update and be even better by the time you get the money together for it.

2.8 GHZ processor speed and the other system was 3.2 GHZ speed so this new one is slower.
The other system is a Dual Core and the same with the new one.
Same amount of memory
The old system has a smaller hard drive
Old system Win7 Professional... New system Win7 Home Premium but I'm not sure if the newer one is the 32 or 64 bit version
Based off the specs I am seeing the old system is better from TigerDirect. It has the keyboard and mouse already, faster cpu, smaller hard drive but same amount of memory.
Now even though I like AMD better I have to say the TigerDirect system looks better on the specs then this new one you linked to.
