I am so sorry, I messed up, it's $850.
Its not that bad for all the stuff you got with it. If it is an eMachines, which I think it is based on all the stuff it has in it, then I think its just an OK deal. You didn't get screwed.
I got the same exact eMachines CPU, but I got the AMD 3200 processor instead. I got a monitor and printer for $500.
As to having the 64bit. I just don't see the need for them right now and especially in your case. When the Longhorn comes out it will be running off of a lot higher specs as previously stated and even if thats the norm in 2 years, your computer won't be the norm. You will have to spend hundreds of bucks to get your computer up to all those specs.
I think the 64bit right now is someone of a hoax. It's not going to hurt you, but you are paying premium on something you can't even use to its capacity and therefore you are paying more for the same performance 32bit users are using.
