    I don't think it is a 2k comp. 512mb is better then 126mb, anywayz i can upgrade any time. 128MB grafics card isnt bad.

    Also i am ask if this is a good price for what i am getting

    Ya but the graphics are 5200fx.

    I guess it's a good computer since it comes with all the "Extras" but still...

    you could build a better system for far less, and can customize how you want it. case and parts.

    ill go have a look at pruice for a very comparable system

    for about the same system on ebuyer by using parts about $1400 which is $500 cheaper

    but if u spend time, and used a better online place, u could prob get it cheaper,. or better system for you $2000

    i agree with livy, that PC would be so much cheaper when bought from parts, and all the software you mentioned can be easily downloaded for free.
