<<To those interested, I decided to solve the problem by purchasing a new system (less my monitor and printer which are fine). The more expensive solution but I'm sure the better in the short and long-term.

Hey Scott!

Just wanted to say that you don't need anything fancy if you're just surfing the net mostly. Any of those sub $1K computers will do you fine. Even the freebies (with the 3 yr rebate game) will do everything you want and more. Of course if you're looking at going to DSL or cable modems (highly recommended if you can get it), then you'd want to skip the 3 year contract.

It's only when you want the high-tech games, 3D shooters and the like, or graphic and sound design that you need serious hardware. If you're not doing any of this, save the bucks!
