Help with choice for new non-gamer system
My existing computer is old: Abit AN7 motherboard, 1.47 gigahertz AMD Athlon XP CPU, (2) 90GB IBM Deskstar hard drives, 768MB memory, RADEON 9200 PRO, and XP Professional OS.
I was thinking about pairing an AMD Phenom II X2 550 Callisto Black Edition 3.1GHz with an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 785G as the basis for my new system. I am not a gamer, so I don't need a high dollar system. In fact, this is more than I need for right now. Even though they are AM3 socket and need DDR3 memory, I probably won't upgrade again for some time and I want to extend the time before my next upgrade.
