What you've got will do music and surfing, provided you have a sound card, speakers for music and a modem for the Net.

What size is the hard drive you might need a larger one and if the bios will not reconise it you will have to upgrade the bios I have just done one for a friend and the bios would not reconise a 8gb drive but after shooting it no problem hope this helps kopite
