Re: some answers/opinions, Part III (final part!)


I placed the order, and as usual pushed the $500 to $1,000.

1) CPU one step up to E6550 $50
2) Vista Business with Quickbooks (no discount to eliminate QB) $99
3) 320GB Hard Drive $90
4) Dual DVD RW $10
5) Multiple Memory Card reader $30
6) nVidia 256MB 8600gt $120
7) Tax and fee $82

This started out as a $500 gift, but all upgrades seemed necessary, the offered no-video-card setup draws memory from the RAM, and while 2GB seemed adequate to supply memory I decided to play it safe and buy adequate card memory after the problems I've had on my main computer.
