    Why should he.... if hes not gaming and using PC just on surfing and a little photoshop or whatever there is no need to buy top line components!

    watching HD movies on highest resolution? multiple screens? multitasking while doing so? having not to upgrade for an extra year or two? this is what i think about.

    Well yes Movies in HD, 2 24" screens and multitasking....
    i know that there is no future upgrade for this setup right now, but have a look on SAMS tasks he wants to accomplish with his system.

    I say its depending on teh budget ;D

    Thats why i said on buying AMD WIndsor 6000+
    it has 2x 3.0 GHZ ....best he can get and cheapest.
    /agree

    and 4GB of RAM is plenty anyway for just about any application.

    I run 4GB on my rig at home and never use more than 2.5 like ever.

    i think we failed Sam, lol.

    budgetary restraint, go with your setup Sam. *maybe* get a better PSU than the stock one. and maybe consider a mobo with DDR3 capability (and expandable to more than 4gb). shouldn't be much more expensive...

    Thanks for the replies!

    Ok, so it seems like tigger knows what I'm after, which is a budget WoW system. It sounds like I need to step up the graphic card and look into a faster CPU as opposed to more cores, right? Any need for a higher resolution monitor? I could switch to DDR3 if you guys think I should, but unless there is a BIG difference, I don't see why... also, I will be running windows 7 64 bit pro.

    Now that makes it different. If you go for 64 bit tbh take more ram: ddr2 is cheap and gthere is no BIG difference.

    The screen is something else. Normally u buy a screen to last like 3^r yrs: i advise to put more mloney tghere. So have a look on tbhe samsung syncmaster p2450h. I own it twice...is teh pwnz0r
