    I wanted to see what suggestions ya'll had to complete this tower.
    nothing too powerful. just something that she can upload pictures on, listen to music, etc.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't micros for like frag boxes? Why a micro then? Just wonderin'

    Also, IMO A single core would be enough for someone who is just browsing the web and such (My mum does just that and lite gaming). Just be sure not to bog it down with vista

    Parts look good

    I'm actually trying to set up a frag box (I like how they look) that will be my PVR and all around decent PC to accompany my purty 42" LCD.

    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    Frag box= gaming PC.
    Looks like a good rig, just make sure that you don't put any ASUS components in it. I actually hate them with a passion at the moment.

    Frag Boxes are like a really small computer tower, however, they are only a 1/3 of the height, but are about about a 1/2 size wider than the computer tower. They are this way so that they can be 'portable' for gamers to take to competitions and such. i <3 the Fragbox lol.
