if you look at the msg i responded to, the OP cancelled the first order and was considering a 2.13 core 2.

if i were you,
i wouldnt go with a processor less than core2 3.0 or quad 2.6
and get a 4mb cache or 6mb cache.
that 2.13 is too weak.
the xps410 is fine.
also check out the precision T3400 or optiplex 755. both with 3 yr
getting more than 3 gb of ram is wasteful on these systems. 2gb is
you'll also do better on hard drives if you add them afterwards. like
get a 500gb for $80, or 1TB sata for $180 with 5 year warranty.
dell's pricing for additional drives are too expensive.
the sp2208 flat panel is fine, with the built in cam, i got one.
but also consider the 24 inch 2208 or E248, both are better, but no
also i dont like the ATI cards lately, you'll enjoy the Nvidea better.
