I would at least suggest a bigger Monitor.

Right now I have a 17" myself, and I hate it. (Going for a 19" Eizo or 22" Iiyama soon)

Just make sure, that you can expand later, with more memory and perhaps a faster CPU.

It looks like it's a prebuild Compaq, HP or something... computer you are trying to buy.

I think 17'' is fine with me,man.
Yeah I think I could upgrade the system later.
Well, I'm not that good to build my own so I figure I'd better get a prebuild one.
How about the video card, is it ok?

Unless you really cant afford the extra cost, I would try to avoid buying MX series videocards. they are usually about 2 generations behind the current standard- a GeForce 4 MX is basically a GeForce 2 with 64mb of RAM.
