    They should work, yes.

    The hard drive makes no sense at all, why would you pay $79.99 for a re-certified 250GB drive when you can have a brand new 500GB for $59.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767

    What will this computer be used for? Some of the parts are a little on the cheap side. The power supply won't leave much room for upgrades, especially if you ever wanted to add a video card to the system.

    I am using this for the internet, some games (i might get a better power supply for video card), and other things. Will windows 7 work on this?

    Windows 7 will work, if you get a 32 bit version though you'll only be able to use about 3.25GB of RAM out of the 4GB unless you step up to the 64 bit version.

    What games do you wish to play? The integrated Intel graphics barely cut it for even basic games, an add-in graphics card from AMD or NVIDIA would be highly recommended for most games.

    A 500 watt PSU is pretty much the minimum these days, and it should from a quality manufacturer.
