Any thoughts on either of these as backup comps?

  1. 1. eMachines T5048 Minitower Computer with 3.06GHz Pentium 4 HT, 512MB SDRAM, 160GB Hard Drive, Double Layer DVD+/-RW Drive, and WinXP Media for Only $249.99 after Rebate with FREE Shipping

    2. Dimension C521 with AMD Athlon 64 3200+, 512MB DDR2, 80GB S-ATA HD, 16x DVD-ROM for $399 with FREE Shipping including 17" LCD Monitor!

    I'll be picking up a new main computer soon also, and am looking to get by cheap on my backup. Does Win Xp Media have any problems as opposed to XP Pro?
  2. gnome


    Only problem you might have is the number and type of video card slots... just check to see they are adequate for your needs. (I use an eMachines T4010 with single monitor for part of my setup, and it's been just fine.)
