Bought this system on Ebay for $410 to my door. Priced it on Dell for a little over $750, so I feel I got a great deal. However, I know there are a few shortcomings of the system. I plan on adding another 256MB of RAM, if not another 512MB. It also comes with XP home, but I have PRO and will upgrade. I also intend on adding a larger back up HD. That's what I know so far. What else would be good to add to this system or would you leave it alone? I'm not a big gamer, but I do plan an occasional game or two. Anyway, your thoughts on this system would be appreciated.
