My gf sister need a computer. She basically is gonna use it to surf the web, store picture, pretty basic stuff, no gaming. I have spare parts but no enough not enough for either an amd build or intel...
Here is what i have:
mobo: asus P5Qpro
CPU: Q6600, although I'm not sure I want to part with it
VCard:forgot but will edit as soon as I get home
Ram: no ram
mobo: no mobo
CPU: athlon xp 2600+
vCard: no vCard.
I have a case, HD, Mouse, keyboard and monitor, for either system. Hopefully I didn't forget anything. ,i know the quad is more powerful but since she is not going to be using it for anything to intense, So my question what is the best bang for buck I could get, trying to go for price/performance thanks in advance.
