    My Brother's Starter PC

    AMD XP 2000+ 256MB PC2100 DDR Desktop With 64MB Video, Sound, V.90 56K FAX/Modem, 10/100base LAN USB2.0, 40GB HD, 52x CDRW, FDD, KB/MS.

    Just got my brother that PC for his birthday as a starter PC.

    It is 100% upgradeable, has afull tower, everything minus the monitor (already have one for him) for $285+59.99 shipping= $344.00 in total.

    I think it is a fair deal.

    I hope he likes it. It's not that spectacular but it will get him started in the PC world.

    It has an AGP slot so he can add a graphics card later, and it has 2 open PCI slots for further expansion.

    I've "purchased" several software titles to add to the HDD. I am sure he will enjoy it.

    Software titles:
    Windows XP Pro
    Norton AV 2003
    Bullet Proof Server
    Nero Burning ROM
    Adobe Photoshop
    WinDVD
    PowerDVD
    Regcleaner
    WinRAR Corporate
    Office XP Professional
    Quicktime 6.0 Pro
    Sygate Personal Firewall
    Kazaa
    Emule
    mIRC
    and so on...

    I will be giving him several games to try out his new PC with. Hopefully he will appreciate it.
