nice starter computer to upgrade you can get one of these, and then upgrade/get more the ram, and get an x850xt for $134 off newegg, and for less than 500 have a pretty bitchin compuer. and maybe get the $10 psu off radioshack (the ultra one) and this thing will rock straight up, stability and everything. or maybe spend 230 (260 before rebates) and get a nvidia 7900. it's a lot like what i did, but without the rebates, so no rebates!!! woot woot! (my comp was this, and all i have left of it is the monitor, printer, 80GB HDD w/ windows xp license!, processor, dvdRW, and media card reader) changed a whole hell of a lot, but i like emachines. i got an email, so i thought i would let everyone know! oyea, throw out that modem! who uses those?!?!
