Newbie..Need Some Build Help
Hello Everyone, Stumbled upon the forums here tonight and have done quite abit of reading on the suggestions on builds. I'm totally new to build your own have always just bought at the store every 5 years or so, but I think my best option now is a custom build at a price I can afford.
I've been using a HP m7334n Media Center for the last 5 years with three 3 gig of ram.
What I will be using it for, I do website work for our local high school and my own. So I need it to handle that, which won't be much and photo editing and photoshop and programs like that. The most demanding thing I do is game films, so I do video editing on the system and need something that will preform great mulititasking all those things at one time, while being on the internet also. My HP m7334n, seemed to do a pretty good job and I really have no complants about it, but it did die last week and I had a computer tech look at it and he believes it's the mother board, so it would be a good time to look at an upgrade. I don't play any games, so that's not an issue.
I won't need DVD drives or even a hard drive as I had just bought a new sata 1t and also have a 500 g. OS I don't need to buy either as for now I want to stay with XP as I'm used to it and all the programs I'm used to running things.
What package do you guys suggest on a $400 or under budget? I appreciate your help, time and suggestions.
