Thank you, my friend. You should have told me you wanted an AMD build. They are better processors if you're on a budget.

Hey now. I have a C2Q Q6600. It works wonders in helping me with video editing. I'm not too sure about everyday use, though. I usually turn on the power saving option for the processor. Saves a lot of power.

Could be. Firefox like to use a lot of RAM (mines usually using 200k+), Vista hogs some, especially if you like those little interactive bars. So depending on the OS and what your daily use consists of 4GB could be overkill.

A 32 bit operating system can't even use that much memory. I think it's overkill no matter what. Unless you're running a 64 bit operation system and doing some intensive stuff. That's where the extra memory REALLY kicks in.

Hmm, i had a build picked out for me. And I dont do alot. Some programming, Music, Net, and msn. Basic stuff really, and I was going to go with Quad Core and 4 gb.

But I guess that'd be over kill?

If you're using a 32 bit operating system, then yes. If you stick with 32 bit XP. 2 GB is more than enough to do everything. I'm using Vista Ultimate. It hogs up way too much memory for all the neat stuff. Like the video background and the Aero interface.
