  1. Pretty much any Core 2 Duo out there will be faster than a P4 3.4.
  2. Thank you for the help. Also I was wondering how big of a power supply I would need. He wants me to keep the cost of this PC relatively low, so the rest of the parts would be average. Here are the specs I have picked out so far:

    Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 PCI-e

    M-Audio Delta 1919 LT PCI

    Kingston HyperX 4GB (4x1GB)

    Western Digital 500GB SATA

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775

    Intel Dual Core E2200

    LG 22X DVD Burner
  3. the slowest one is a 2.8 so you'll be fine there but get the best you can afford that is most likely a min requirement
  4. You wouldn't need a huge power supply for that. I'd go with something like the Corsair CX400.
