Hello! I have received some outstanding advice in the past, so I’m back for more.
I am looking to “piece together a home PC that will be used mostly for surfing the net, email, editing photos, creating video/dvd’s, word processing, etc.
I currently have a 5-6 year old HP Pavilion that cannot be upgraded in terms of the processor, graphic support, etc.
These are the parts I want to use or that I think I can use from my current system. HP Pavilion xe745. My question for the experts is what else do I need to buy to give me a working machine.
