Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP Budget Range: $2,000 After Rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: surfing web/research, editing videos/pictures, desktop publishing/word processing. Parts Not Required: Need all - plan to use the 420 as backup and bookkeeping (anything not needing internet) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Dell is most familiar to me, have bought items from Newegg in past. Country: USA Parts Preferences: Confused over AMD Radeon vs. NVIDIA GeForce GT (which I currently have. Overclocking: Not sure what this is. SLI or Crossfire: Not sure Monitor Resolution: 1024x768, (because what I am familiar with?) Additional Comments: I just want speed and quietness, quality for reasonable price.
