Well, After minutes of research, I took the plunge and went with a Dell...
2.2 GHz Pentium 4
256 MB RAM (I have another 256 Card in my current computer)
30 GB Hard Drive
CD and CD-RW
Which pretty much covers the highlights, all for $600 shipped after applicable rebates and junk. I was quite pleased with what I am getting and can finally retire old Bessy, a 233 MHz with 1 GB Hard Drive which is about plum full. I am going to suprise my wife next week...hopefully she doesn't read this
