I decided it was about time, having (accidentally, as it goes) avoided vista, to get a new machine, as things have progressed somewhat in the last 3.5-ish years, and Win7 seems well regarded.
I'd like to lower the cost (£997 with VAT) a bit if i can. The monitor will be changed as i did specify i cant have one bigger than 19", and i almost certainly wont be getting the speakers.
Speaking of speakers, the PC will be my main hifi source for now and the mobo has the optical connection my speakers need.
Would i have to spend much more by going 64 bit? Would the increase in memory (if i put more than 4 gig in) really help?
Apart from music listening i only do web browsing, emails etc. No photo work or games at all. The most i would do is save a photo to the hdd.
Oh, I'll probably get a much smaller hdd as ill never fill 1TB.
