Hey, I am trying to put together a new computer for a friend. He'll be using it for work / music creation / gaming. I don't think he'll be playing the most recent games as he is trying to keep the cost of the computer down.
I'm not including a graphics card in this as he had already purchased a 9400GT for his current computer before he discovered it wouldn't fit. He will probably upgrade this at a later date.
Any suggestions are most welcome. Thanks for helping : )
