Well you would want to go with a Pentium for multi-tasking and business stuff. 1GB of RAM would be nice, and as far as video cards go, if you don't have to do any image rendering or something, then go with a sturdy AGP card, 9600/6200/6600

Wait, so they are asking you on what motherboard and RAM you want? Really for work stuff you don't need a good PC if you're just doing Excel and such. 512RAM and a any motherboard would be fine.

Unless you're doing computer graphics.

I mean, if they literally ask you what you want, and they'll buy it, you could tell them like 1gb RAM and a 6600gt and 3.0 Pentium 4, but that'd be kind of cheating them out...
