cornontyne,

Your system will be fine for broadband.

You will need a fire wall and full time
anit-virus applications.

Currently I am using Zone Alarm for a fire wall
and Norton Anti Virus. Avoid Norton Internet Security. Good application but resource hungry.

Others are sure to follow with their suggestions and advice. Go to this web site http://grc.com/default.htm
Scroll down to link "ShieldsUP!. Steve Gibson has excellent articles on Internet security.

Cornontyne,

You didn't say, but you'll also need a network card which will connect from the broadband modem to your computer. Depending on whether you choose to use a wireless setup or a cable connection, you'll need to have that particular network card installed.

Hope this helps.

Yes, although you may need to add an ethernet card if you do not have one.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
