I REALLY want to pass my current MoBo on to her; that partially influenced my list.
Also, she keeps ALL of her files on her computer, including email etc, and she wants a LOT of room.
So, a 6600GT, Athlon 64 3000+? That would drop the price a lot, I'm sure.
And just a 160GB Hard Drive?
I guess that it IS my mom...
More like a 6200.
A 6600 GT is still overkill for what she is going to do with it. Seriously, why would she need a 6600GT? C'mon... And a 7800GT is just stupid...
The video quality on a 6200 is the same as a 7800GTX 512, its not 3D, it's 2D. Photoshop and videos use very VERY little GFX power, they really just use CPU power, nto GFX power. If she isnt playing CS;S or anything around that ballpark, SHE WONT NEED ANY THING MORE THAN A 6200, trust me.
