Just bought a computer....is this an ok deal?

I know I should have consulted with you guys first. But this was an impulse buy. (it was on sale as my wife would say) I am not a geek, so I don't need a computer for graphics or any major work. Strictly to use at home to talk with you guys and to watch porn.(at least I am honest LOL!) And to keep important financial documents on. Here it is........from Wally World.

HP Invent......a305w-b
Intel Celeron processor 2.7gz
40gb ultra DMA hard drive
CD-RW 48 X 24 X 48 X MAX SPEED
OPEN DRIVE BAY FOR EXPANSION
17" CRT MONITOR
256 MB DDR SDRAM MEMORY
INTEGRATED INTEL EXTREME GRAPHICS WIHT UP TO64MB SHARED VIDEO MEMORY
V.92 K56 FLEX DATA/FAX MODEM
10/100BASET ETHERNET INTERFACE

Naturally this will come complete with the keyboard, speakers, ect. This was on sale for 498.00 at Wally World. I have only bought one other computer,,,,,its the one I am on.... HP 400mhz
I know HP is not the best....but it seemed like a good deal. Whatcha think?
