    The DVI connector for the monitor should be ok.

    Why not just upgrade the dell PC by adding in some ram and a second hard drive? it'll be good practice for you.

    The new build seems fine for the spec and for what you want it for :)

    I know you said you won't be using the system for gaming, but it may be worth getting a cheapy graphics card aswell. It might help free up some system resources and it'll probably improve your Vista experience (ie. Windows Aero may not be available just using onboard graphics).

    Plus, you'll get the added experience of adding hardware for your A+

    Run this test from QDI it will tell what the mobo is and what type of ram it is http://www.testmyhardware.com/qdi.html. I think the ram will be ddr at best

    Also, regardless of your skill level, have you considered building your own? You could probably build a better spec for that price! There are tutorials and advice all over the Internet. If you can do the research then you would save some cash!

    Also, loads of us would be happy to help on this forum. :)

    good point Jimboooo, a pc isn't really all that difficult to builds. Its a bit like a jigsaw fit in the part in its appropriate place :D
