Hi, I'm looking into getting a new PC soon and thought I would look into what there is ahead of time to get an idea of what I want. I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything but may play the occasional game or two now and then. I mostly use it for browsing the net, video playback etc. I have found the following so far and was hoping to get some feedback on if it is suitable or overkill for what I will use it for: I want a dual core processor and I'm looking at the E8400 right now. I found that ASUS has a good rep for mobo's and possibly looking at the P45 chipset? I am also looking at the G45 although do you think this would not be wise as the gfx are integrated? I read up on crossfire and don't think I will be needing this... I also read that DDR3 has little difference in performance and is buggy with anything other than a quad core. Is this correct and should I go for DDR2?
