This sounds like a very good deal. I would consider it if I was in the line for a new machine. It only has 933mhz but really you don't need much more. They try to push 1+gig machines but really, beyond bragging rights, you don't need it yet. 933 is good for anyone. It will be a while before that would become old school I think.
512 ram, sounds good too. Beyond that, you really don't notice a difference. The more the better but that is extreamly good.
GeForce 2 is good. They have the GeForce 3's now, you could want to look into that, but for a gaming machine I think, from what I've seen lately, 32mb card is good as well.
Hard drive sounds small though. Of coarse It depends on how much you'll put on it. I haven't got above 8gigs myself but if you plan on downloading a lot of sg-1 episodes you may want to go for a larger one, or buy another one to make as a slave. If you get a large hard drive, it may not be a bad idea to partician that sucker just to make it more reliable. 18g is good but as large as they are now, you may want to get a larger one. Just depends on you and how much you'll have on it at one time.
CD/DVD sounds really great. With that you can watch any sg-1 episodes on dvd if you want. Looks pretty good as far as they go.
I'm not up on audio cards, so maybe someone will know here though.
2000 is great, wait untill XP has the problems worked out to use it. 2000 is fine, I think.
Sounds like an over all good machine. The price does seem a little high though. I didn't see anything that would blow it up that high, I didn't think. If you've looked around and this is something that your really interested in getting, I think thats a good buy. Well, it's better than mine atleast...
