He mentioned his friend built a 64 bit cpu and I was just mentioning that I've got alittle experience with the 64 bit processors. Somewhat not revelant but a wee bit I guess.

Ok I guess I'll attempt to sell it

How about ya'll price me out a system say 500 - 700 that is decent.

Yeah, most people wouldn't know how to look, even if you just formatted it, but its best to be sure.

Anywya, i say the same thing. Get a new system

If its cheaper, get another one from a company, but if you want the best performance/price, i'd build one using custom parts, or buy them, and get a mate to build it or something. That way, your getting the best PC for money can buy, and no un-upgradeable parts.

Plus, because your not a gamer, you don't need a good video card, so you could spend more on what matters to editing people, more memory, or better sound, since you do sound editing as well.

Well if he was, he could still get a good card.

I'd still spec him with a PCI-E motherboard if it doesn't cost much more than an AGP one. More upgradeability for the future and the like.

...Hmm, thats still a rather expensive card though for what he wants to use it for, but again for the future, its alright I guess.

You see, editing programs dont make that much use of the graphics. Though, saying that, its much better than an onboard chip would be.
