Today I'm back to designing another new build project and need some advice from experienced hands. This is for a lady friend who will use it pretty much for regular home uses. Internet browsing, letter writing, home accounting, very minor photo editing but lots of photo storage, limited Skyping. Would like to keep it around or below $500, but can exceed it if necessary. The main requirements are that it be fast, have good connectability and be upgradeable.
Right now I'm looking at an Asus A88X-Pro mother board and AMD A10-6800K processor. I know that may be overkill and it certainly pushes the price target, but it seems to meet the requirements. Especially speed. One question is rather that combination will provide on board video and not require an additional video card. At this point I believe it will.
I would appreciate any critique of the selection or suggestions of alternatives at a lower price while maintaining the requirements.
Thanks in advance for any comments
