My parents are looking for me to build a new computer and upgrade from their win xp based AMD Athlon 3200+ computer I built for them many many years back. I've stopped keeping up with what's good. Computer needs to be decently fast to run windows 7. No video editing or gaming. Just basic photo editing, office, web and whatever for my dad's investment software. I was originally considering an AMD PII x4 910e, then I saw a performance comparison where the intel i5 750 seemed a better deal for the price/performance/power consumption. I live near a fry's and missed out on a i5 750 cpu + mobo combo for $200. I'm sure another deal will surface soon. Otherwise today, I started looking at the amd PII x3 705e as that cpu seems pretty reasonably priced. Essentially, just need a cpu which has a good balance of performance, power consumption and price. Whatcha got??
