Hello, I have experience with upgrades and changing out parts, but otherwise 1st time build. PC will be used for word processing, spreadsheets, internet, no gaming, but I do use Adobe illustrator. I do need dual monitor capability and at least 5 usb ports. Will be considering future upgrades, especially monitors.
Purchase date: coming week
Budget: $700-800 before shipping
OS: have Windows 7 home premium
Monitors: have a Viewsonic VA2226w and a HP S2031, resolution 1680 x1050
Peripherals: Microsoft laser mouse 6000, Dell keyboard, Seagate Freeagent HD 500GB, speakers
Upgrade reason: old dell, MB failures, poor power supply
