Replacing church computer

MBD
  • 70 months ago

I'm considering this build for my computer at a church office. I do some video, audio, and photo editing, and I administrate several websites. And of course, Microsoft Office and web browsing.

I'm still trying to decide between Windows 8 and 7. I will need to continue to connect to an XP machine.

You might (might) be able to ditch the video card and bump your CPU to an Intel i5 with modest onboard graphics. If gaming is out of the picture, you really won't need too much. And the extra horsepower in the CPU will help with the video/audio/photo editing.
