    I would consider 2GB of memory. Other than that your good to go. *TacoBell hand flarewave *

    Personally I would wait another month or so and go with the new conroe CPU and a 965 chipset.

    Like iss said, wait a bit for the new Conroy cpu and 965 chipset.
    Even if you still get the unit that you have listed, the price will be lower next month, then you can get the extra ram.

    Nork brings up a good point. even if you dont want to go with Conroe, by waiting until it is released you will be able to buy the 930 CPU cheaper as the price on those will drop when conroe is released. either way go with at least a 965 chipset so you can upgrade later on.
