Default New Computer

It is time for a new computer.

I currently have a Dell 2400 with the following specs-
- P4 2.4 GHz
- 512mb ram
- 40 gb HD
- cd/rw and dvd drive
- intergrated graphics

I want something that will be significantly faster. I will just be internet surfing, watching videos, listening to music, storing photos, and VERY light gaming. I know I will need a large HD (at least 80gb).

What is a good cpu/mobo/ram combo that will be significantly faster than my current Dell.

Thank you.
