    Will I regret skipping the upgraded vid card if I never play games? Is is usefull in other apps other than games? I need the ram and the bigger hard drive, but I would like to save money on the vid card if I could.

    The 7600 is a BIG improvement over the 7300... but I would say not worth it unless you do some gaming or 3D. But if you plan to keep your machine for years, it might be worth for everyone--just don't skimp on RAM to afford the GPU :)
