Hey you IT guys at Toms, I am currently toe deep in a computer build, and I'm laying out a basic design plan. First off, I am trying to decide on a processor and motherboard to use in it. Intel's new i5 processor looks promising, but a bit pricey with the motherboard it has to go with. Should I use this processor, or use an older, less expensive processor? The computer is going to be used for work, Quickbooks 2009, MS Word & Excel, and some other business programs.
If I should go with another processor, which one would you use?

i would always suggest buy newer if you have a choice...
the intel i5 should be fine for what you want to accomplish,
However if you are looking at going cheaper amd is the budget company.
