I think this pc has way too much power to be a college pc. You could cope with a lot less and save money.

Here's another suggestion. Please do not cross post three times in three different forum sections.

I don't like that PSU at all. Read the PSU basics thread in the PSU section.

If this is primarily a gaming system then an Athlon 64 is a much better system. If it's for video editing/encoding stick with a P4.

Hmm kinda like me, except without the gaming. Though choice.

A64 is better for Photoshop, Flash etc (content creation) and games but P4 is better for video editing. You have to work out what your priorities are. I'd say A64. Great performance in games and content creation and still good performance with video editing.

The case, HD, optical drives are fine for either system. The PSU worries me though. look at the PSU basics thread in the PSU section to see why and go for a brand we recommend

Yo never mentioned RAM but it would be PC3200 for the A64 system.

Unless you have GREAT speakers to take advantage of that sound card the on-board is fine.
