    Ok, I am building a system for my grandpa (opa in German) so this is what it has:
    What do you think about the parts (not for gaming... for excel, internet, lots of stuff to do with stocks)

    -Asus M2N-E socket AM2
    -AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (windsor)
    -Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2 2GB (800MHz)
    -Asus EN7300LE nVidia GeForce 7300Le (450MHz, 128MB)
    -Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM SATA
    -Antec TRUEPOWER TRIO 430W (w/120mm fan)

    This computer will be running windows xp service pack 2.

    This system will cost $742.08 after tax and $702.08 if we really get the $40 dollar rebate on the RAM.

    I think that this is a great build and a great price!!! tell me what you think!

    I agree here. I would just give him at least 1gig ram to make sure things run smoothly and how big is the hard drive you are going to install. I would suggest minimum of 80 to 120gigs if found.
