    Hello all,
    I've been contemplating about buying a new desktop to do some light website work and internet marketing. I would like the capability to run with 2 screens and enough power to run visual studio with no problems. I've been looking at the http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/vostrodt_410?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsdVostro 410 Performance Package. Would this be suitable for what I'm looking to do? If not, what would you guys recommend thats in the price range of about 1000 bucks?

    I didn't mean that light of work. I need something good for production. I'll be using at least 2 screens so a macbook is insufficient.

    depends how small, I would rather take 2 15" than a large 24" for development.

    for general everyday use, id probably opt for the 24"

    2 big ones > 1 big one > 2 small ones.

    I see the last one I bought is on sale again for $220...
    Maybe we'll add 3 big ones > ....

    IMO, that's not true. I went to a t-config with the two 24s because when they were side by side, landscape, i'd have to move my eyes and head around too much.
