Question Building new PC

Hi guys, I need some really good advice. I am wanting to build my own system, but I don't need anything really fancy. This system will be for me to do everyday book work, emailing and a little grapic work now and again. I already have my hd, os xp and other drives. So really, all I need is a case, cooling system, cpu and maybe grapic card. I want to spend about $200. If anyone could give me some product names and any advice, this would be apprciated. Thanks so much!!

If you are going to run simple tasks then go with Intel chips, but if you are into gaming then settle in with an AMD. What type of graphic work will you be doing?

I will mainly be doing picture editing from my camera. Thats about it. But doesn't the AMD chip run better than the Inter? I have only had AMD computers, so I haven't experienced the difference

They both run, and the way I do it is find 2 equivilantly operating processors, and buy the cheaper one. That's why I ended up with an AMD.
