Built my last two Windows systems, and it's that time again.
Building home office PC. General use: surfing, email, streaming, occasional photo / graphic editing, media management, video player, Office Suite, occasional data recovery work, camming. No gaming. No video editing. No rendering.
I have this motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+
I have 2tb 7200 sata harddrive, keeping it down to half full (for maintaining decent read/write speed)
I have 16gb of DDR3 ram
I need this processor: _____________________________________________

Max price range around $175, if it'll make a big difference.
Those familiar with this board feel free to share any helpful tips. I'm coming from a circa 2007 Dell XPS 720 Red system, so I'm behind. I'm totally new to this one.
If you really want to go lower-end, this one is a good choice as well.
