    I don't know too much on computer Hardware itself, but to me it looks like everything is pretty fine. Although, I'd do research on the place's you are buying the hardware from as their is so many faults in something that seem's so easy to find yet you may not get what you ordered in return. MicroDirect has a majority of negative reviews about their company.
