If you aren't going to do any gaming, then you really don't need a good graphics card at all. You could jsut get a system with integrated graphics, that would be good enough for your needs. Also, if you don't get a graphics card, you won't have to worry about getting a expensive, high wattage power supply (still not a cheap one thats going to die on you though). This would probab
Suggestions for a new build:
You could probably just get 2gb of ram
A dual core processor from Intel
A basic motherboard, but has room for future upgrades
Around 300 Watt, decent name brand power supply
If you want to just upgrade your computer though, upgrading the ram might be enough for your needs. How much do you currently have? If you have 512mb or less, upgrading it to 1gb or 2gb might give you enough of a performance boost.
