Noo Comput0rz
Yup, with the help of ipequey, kaanah and Kio, I was finally able to get a computer that will fit my needs without getting too much, and without getting fleeced too badly on price.

It's a nice system and all, and I am slowly but surely transferring everything from my old PC to this one, but there is one issue I can't seem to resolve. All the paperwork I got with the system tells me I have a 320GB hard drive, but when I check the drive properties, it says I only have 50GB capacity on it.

Is there something simple I need to do that I am missing?

*chuckles* As the aforementioned PC geek: It looks like a drive image that was originally created for a smaller drive, and the maker simply never rebuilt it for the larger one. Whatever drive-imaging tool they use created the necessary partition size and left the rest completely unallocated. Not even merely unformatted, but unallocated. Rather a poor QA bit on their part, but oh well. Problem sorted.

Not very good quality control at all. Easily fixed, at least.
