HP
  • Intel Core2 Duo E7500 Wolfdale 2.93GHz
  • 4GB G.SKILL (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
  • GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

I think the buy option will need a video card regardless, but it does give a lot more for the money. I'll be running Windows 7 on it, so Vista won't come into play.

1080p is a must.
