what do you use it for?

In reply to: Did I get a good PC ?

it depends on what you use it for. it seems good, except for the graphics card. if you intend to do any kind of gaming, you will want a seperate graphics card with its own memory. i have an hp, and i'm happy with it, but you also might want to look into emachines. i'm not sure about their quality, though.

You have a great PC

In reply to: make and model#

Memory and processor are more than enough to tackle your uses for the PC. It will handle your needs with ease. You can always drop in today's video card with its x16 slot. Don't worry, you got a great system ;).
