I'd also see if you could find a better PSU, FSP group? just as rosewills are known to go boom... and that means a PC down and possibly lost business...
If you ran a 21" CRT at 60hz, which would compare to the current LCD screens, you would probably be looking at least a 1600x1200 resolution. My 22" CRT is 2048x1536.

I hope she knows the best way to install all those games/ os's is install everything on one pc, then make an image of the drive and copy it to all other hdd's. That method will make it so she only has to install once. Then as game patches come out she only has to update the image and use it as a backup. Hope that helps.

It only costs like 5 or 10 more dollars to get a GTS 250, I would do that.

ya i just went and read up on it. the 250 is slightly better by about 10% in performance.

@firestorm i dont think i would she need the extra performance. as said before 50+ fps is decent enough to kids who have never seen or played games like this that have nothing like this around or near them.

I believe http://www.clonezilla.org/ would be a good place to start. I have not personally had use for it in my life but it should do the job wonderfully. The server version is what you would want in this case.
