I am buying a new desktop to use in my office.  I need it for surfing the web, MS Office, Quickbooks most of the time.  I don't need fancy graphics or sound.  What features should I look for when deciding on the new computer? Thank you!

for that you do not need an athlon64..... if you were a hardcore gamer then ok...... i would instaed of an intel recomend an athlon 2800+

2X 256 mb pc 3200 ram sticks
and a nfocre 2 dual channel support motherboard...

1 the amd chip is going to get you the same performace as the pentuim but at less cost

It might be worthwhile to get a HD with 8meg of cache also, to help speedup Office and QB.
