I assume that you are not looking to overclock your machine? This machine (eMachines T6534) has a 16X PCI-e slot for future upgrading. 200GB's of 7,200 rpm drive space is fast and gives you fine room for storage. You might wish to see if you can have a better Power Supply exchanged as the one you have in there could well be a bit weak for your use.

I understand that you want a machine that is complete and which you would not have to end up tweaking to keep running well. As a computer enthusiast I sometimes forget the issues that come up and that I can easily deal with but that would keep many laymen frustrated and paying others to deal with.

All in all, this is not a bad machine. Note that the grapics embedded is the Nvidia 6100 which is no slouch for casual gaming and video work until you upgrade to a discrete video card solution.

This one looks promising but there is no word on the graphics solution, whether it is embedded or not. It says a 256MB Video Card so I would check to see if this is embedded. Refurbished though and a 90 day warranty is minimal

I don't like the information on the Acer. They fail to say what the chipset is which leads me to think VIA/SiS and you want to stay away from these chipsets if you can.

If it was my choice it would be the refurbished jobbie as it is the better machine and lack of warranties does not personally bother me. For you, well I would advise the first machine.

Yeah,Ropey.I was thinking the T6534 was be the best choice.Being as I've already got a eMachines W3107 and haven't had a single problem with it.LOL..........And it has a AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8GHz.The San Diego will way much better.But,then too.For some reason the Acer Aspire E360 ASE360-UA3701 is very appealing to.With the 3700+(2.2GHz),1GB of ram to start,and 250GB HDD.And it too has a PCI-E x 16 slot

I've already got 2GB DDR 400MHz(PC3200)Patriot ram.Which will work in either PC.

I decided to research beyond your links and I have to agree with you. The Acer E360 has a discrete 256MB X600 Video Solution.

I have changed my view. I agree with you. This is a Nforce 6100 chipset with a discrete video card. A great deal.

What are some PSu's that you would personally use in the eMachines T6534.I've called tech support and the Nexgen 3 case supports standard size ATX PSU's.What would you use?I know that 300-watt Bestec isn't gonna cut-it.LOL..........
