Ok, so I "found" the money for a new build
I use my compy for some video/photo editing, Office 2007 always, internet research and no gaming(360). I may want to install a blu-ray player in the future, so HD capability is a possibility.
I have the case, psu, cpu cooler, sound card, vista home premium(32 bit), and a bn samsung hdd..... so basically I need a cpu, mb, ram, and a video card(no gaming)
I am torn between the Q6600 and the new E8400, I'm not sure if I will utilize the quad core and think I may want the newer 45nm/1333mhz fsb dual core....undecided.
I don't need a mb with crazy options, however, I would like to OC with ease.
As far as a video card, its a budget build so I am just looking for something that will suit my needs.
And since I will be running a 32 bit OS, 2-3 gb of ram.
Thanks - Chris
