Question Is this a good deal? (Desktop)

I started looking at desktops and came across this. My wife needs one for some photoshop/graphics stuff. Her old IMB T? laptop cant handle all those big new programs anymore.

Is this a good deal for the componets inside?.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...%3DI%26otn%3D2

I know diddly Squat about desktops. I've been using Toughbook for the last 8 years.

Would a Dell XPS 9000 be a better choice?
I red some good and bad things about ASUS Essentio CG5290 also?

Thx

The price is okay.

A more important question is what kind of budget are you looking at? Also, do you prefer a home-built system, or a big-name manufacturer one?

With a custom built machine, you can squeeze the most performance out of it for the amount of money you're willing ot spend. BUT you lose out on the one-stop-shop for warranty work.

If you go with a big-name computer, the performance won't be as good, but you do get the big-name level of support and service.
