I think you've saved an ample amount of cash.
Probably be able to splurge on a nice dinner out when its all up & running, too.
Dual core processors help a lot.
Especially as AMD does 'em, imho.http://www.amd.com/us-en/
or deeper into ithttp://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Produc...5_13041,00.html
If you want to multi-task,
listen to the music,
pull in artwork to adorn it,
comment on it using a document application,
and print out select labels, etc.simultaneously
then you want speed, big mobo caching, hyper-threading & SATA drives.
Think "work station" for entertainment.
Think 64-bit not 32-bit.
Think winXP Media Edition or Vista
Think 512mb video card for graphics.
Think maybe Seagate Barracuda HD.
A 1,000 MB (thats terabyte, lovely number)
maybe a SATA 10,000 rpm for the system HD ... and big.
maybe a SATA 7,200 rpm drive for storage ... and huge.
maybe even another one.
