My budget for the new computer is: Around $500

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Downloading and burning movies, Email, surfing the web, Streaming Video.

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Open office, DVDFAB, convertxtodvd, Windows 7, ect

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? No Games

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? Yes sometimes i tend to be d/l and converting a movie and surfin the web at the same time but not always.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? I have a ton of pics but no music. Have movies but expect to get external HDD for that.


I have a question about 32/64 bit. I dunno really what this does or matters. I herd before people having problems with 64 bit with drivers and all but I know nothing about it.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks!!

The programs you use will will work really well because i use those programs on my core 2 duo which does decent job but the i3 will do even better job at it.
