My System Specs

Default

Above poster meant "good choice on the hard drive" Hes referring to the wd 640gb, as its faster then the 500 due to it having higher density platters.
An e8400 is going to be wayyyy faster then a 1.8ghz. I was suggesting it as its a cheaper setup then the core i5, which is probably overkill. You wouldnt notice any difference in office apps with the core i5 as compared to the e8400, but go for it if hes willing to spend that much.
