    I agree..

    They do look pretty solid generally but if you are going to be doing heavy intense work on them you would obviously wouldnt want to stay with integrated graphics.. =\

    also on another note, home premium does have a few networking differences than professional, such as rdp. Just something to consider, as I do not know what they will be used for though.

    With the price rebate on it I can buy the upgrade to Pro for less if I really need it, and they will be running three medium weight java overlay client apps, two or three parts books pulled from the network, and internet explorer (as its required).

    Generally my memory use is between 2-4GB above what the OS uses and caches.

    Pretty nice build, more than enough for what you're gonna do,

    just add a decent Video Card, and thats a pretty Solid Gaming PC.

    if you can, add a video card, probably in the $50-100 range is fine, but the CPU is pretty nice so maybe it can handle the workload without any GPU
