New Builder Advice
I'm looking into building my first PC (I've been a long-time Mac user, but in the interest of making myself more marketable, I'm trying to get PC savvy too). I'm not new to computers at all, I just feel like this is a good way for me to familiarize myself with the ins and outs of the PC side. I'm only looking to spend $350 or less including the OS (probably going to be XP Home or Pro). This is what I've been thinking about doing so far:
I'm mainly going to be using this computer for things like web-surfing, MS Office, and maybe some very light gaming. As such, could anyone provide me with some general recommendations as to what I should purchase? If you could tell me which brands are good, bad for RAM, mobos, graphics cards, etc. that would be really great. Also, if anyone has any good site recommendations for purchases that would be good too.
