    Looks good, although a couple of things you will want to consider are:
    the cost of MS office (unless you already have it, or expect to explain what Open Office is)
    the cost of Windows, or the time involved in explaining linux. (I am assuming your mother isnt a particularly advanced computer user)

    And of course both of those are invalid if her work has a Bulk license for MS products.

    Her boss said not to include the software. He already owns office and windows. Soo all i have to do is install it.

    is Patriot any good? because in some games the tilesets are weird..

    I use Patriot memory in my gaming machine Red Lantern and haven't had any problems what so ever. I like it, plus it came with heatsinks on each stick.

    Yep, heatsinks, blue ones :P

    tho, I know that it's my RAM that bugs my game's graphics :/

    any ideas how to test it? I have memtest or something, I've ran it for like 3 days and nothing..
    any way to test whole PC?
