That will about counter the price of a DVD drive, which you left out by accident. Also, since this is not a gaming rig, do you think 1GB of RAM would suffice? He could save $100 that way. Also, I don't know what the difference is between the hard drive you chose and the one I chose, but they seem the same and the one I found is $10 less, so I'll jsut go with that. One last thing too, he said he wanted a side window in the case, so I think the Raidmax one will be better given the fact that it does not cost much more. With all that taken into consideration, it will probably be just under $1000. Thanks exad, you've been extremely helpful.

I think a gig of ram is enough, I was mostly trying to keep the specs around the same as the hp computer you showed. If you do get 1gig, if he doesn't plan on upgrading to 2gigs you should try and get 2x 512mb in DC, it will increase performance aswell. Sorry I forgot the dvd drive. As for the Hard drive, the one I selected has 16mb cache instead of 8mb which helps when u have a larger Hard drive.

I hope everything goes well! Glad I could help!

my guess is that he mentioned 17" merely because of the price.. I could be wrong though
