Not worth it, get emachines t6212. this doesn't have a pci-express slot. You can get the same performance for half the price. don't get fooled by ddr2, its not faster, amd's with its integrated memory controller still beats it.
I am considering purchasing an HP desktop for home use. I am not a gamer, just need a reliable home computer that I will not need to replace in a couple of years. I mainly will use for business which includes standard word processing, spreadsheets, email etc. I also do some video and audio burning. The basic configuration is shown below and the cost of this machine is approx. $1100. It seems like a pretty good machine for the price, but I am not an expert. I am also looking at VelocityMicro, but for a similar config. they are more expensive. Thoughts.
