    The hardware experts will give you advice but can save you time as they'll also at least want to know your motherboard as well... Probably easiest if you run CPU-Z and attach its text report. see How to easily identify your computer hardware

    Also, it would help to know the purpose of the PC. For example, will you be gaming with it and if so, what are some examples of the games you would like to play.
