Strange RAM configuration... 3GB from 4 DIMMs would have to be two 1GB DIMMs and then two 512MB DIMMs I think? I guess that way you stay in dual-channel but you've also run out of DIMM slots, so for any upgrading you'd have to get rid of the 512MB DIMMs.


Strange HDD configuration too--I mean two 320GB drives? For a few extra bucks might as well go with two 500GB drives; or, a single 1TB drive.


Modem is kind of a laugh--I mean who uses a std. telephone-line modem in this day and age? LOL.


AMD A64x2 CPU is not really a good idea either and the 4400+ is relatively slow. Can't be sure about every component included there (it does have 2 HDDs and a discrete videocard) but think I've seen better prices out there on non-refurb systems with Pentium DC or Core2 CPUs.
