suggestions for a newbie
I've started building my first pc. Well, I have a case and power supply! It is an Antec, 400w. So now I am looking for mobo/processor. I've done a lot of reading and I'm confused. I am not a gamer. But I do play around with photos a little. I want the pc to last. To give you an idea, the pc I'm on now is almost 7 years old. I'm still running Win. 98. It's been a good pc, but some of the newer photo programs need more than this relic can give. So some questions:
Do I need/want dual core processor?
Anyone have a mobo recommendation? I'm leaning toward Asus with AMD.
Is it better to buy a motherboard bundle with processor, or buy the components separately?
