Do you have the onboard Intel video?

Unless there's some special reason you need a higher end graphics card 
the intel will give you some decent graphics.

If all your going to have on the computer, and depending on what all you 
want to keep on it, an 80 gig drive should do.  I've used them for years 
until I got this new computer and never filled one up yet. But, I don't 
store every piece of music I own on my hard drive either.
