Wife uses that PC for email and a little bit of web browsing. Daughter does a lot of homework on it, plus a lot of stuff in Photoshop. She does a few games but not high end action ones.

The old P4 is ok I might find a use for it.

Bantu, I will 'dis' you if you dont clock that bus to 333......actually, looking at your sig, you need some stick mate!!!!

The case does not have a lot of cooling, but the CPU cooler might be enough for overclocking it a bit, but it probably does not need it.

The components should also allow me to install Leopard on it as dual boot.

My own PC the one in my Sig works fine as is.
