they have a different video card (asus 9800gtx+) that will be used in the new system. price range is between 400-600 for ram, cpu, and mobo. they play some games sc2, warhammer, etc (nothing that requires sli/crossfire. other than that the computer is used for web browsing and other daily activities nothing special.
any help would be good. I was thinking an i5, but wasn't sure which motherboard. also not sure if an AMD chip would suffice and can actually save money. appreicate any input.
