    Are these pre-built PCs?
    If so, does he have customizing options or is this a "take-it-or-leave-it" kinda deal?

    deffinatly agree,,

    a couple reaons:
    it has an AMD processor
    it has an ATI gfx card
    double ram

    basically what everybody else said.
    Gaint Antispyware is the #1 greatest Spyware/Adware cleaner ever created, I recomend it to everybody, even if you don't think you need it.
