    do you need a modem? Also, the onboard video card sucks for everything other than web browsing and word processing.

    I bought 3 E520's for the accouting department at work a few weeks back.

    They love them.

    just make sure it's either PCI or PCI-X as that system doesn't have an AGP slot. Actually, double check it has a PCI-X slot, I do remember that they built some systems with only PCI slots, but I don't know how recent that was.

    it is very very rare for a desktop to have a PCI-X slot. And honestly, they arn't useful for desktops, anyway.

    You want PCI-E... Not PCI-X

    Looks like a really good deal, with the exception of the graphics card already mentioned. But like you said, it's being replaced, so I'd go for it. :bigthumb:

    Also I changed it from xp home to vista basic for the same price. My thinking is that I have a legal copy of xp pro that I got for my comp now that I will use. My current comp will be a linux tester

    Picked up a 510 off the dell outlet about a month ago. Been very happy with it so far. Case needed a little tweaking to make it silent.
