I am more interested in what you guys think of CPU/RAM/GPU choices.
I have been looking at the AMD Dual Core K325 CPU, but 1.3GHz sounds very low to me....
I would like to be running Windows 7 (perfer 64bit)
Would I be better off with a slower dual core, or a faster single core for the above useage? I am also concerned about start up and shutdown times....
