Neeed a Computer Expert advice ... will return favor
Need some advice re: CPU and Ram.
I don't feel like going through the registration process on a computer message board to get advice, so, anybody who knows his stuff and can give me lots of answers, I'll owe you one. And I do know how to return a favor.
I have a good new MB, Intel specific: http://www.msicomputer.com/index.php...d_no=1485#menu
I am NOT a gamer. My usage is maximum simultaneous: Google Chrome - 10 pages open; MS Office - 8 Word docs and 2 Excel pages open; 2 Adobe Photoshop images open; Limewire; BitTorrent and Media Player all open ... all these simultaneoously. That's maximum ... normally it's about half that (sometimes use Adobe Audition 3.0, but I close everything else for that). Right now I'm XP Pro SP2, though I'll probably go W7 by the end of the year.
Re: Graphics card: [url]http://us.msi.com/index.php?func=pro...0&prod_no=1680[/SIZE]) Can I run a 30-foot HDMI cord from my computer round to my TV? Does the HDMI carry audio? HD video?
Any thoughts on a case? Why do I care? And why do I care about power supply?
