I've had my PC for about 5yrs now and seem to need to do an upgrade to a new machine. The single core 3.06Ghz P4 has held up well, but last night something in the case burned out (I'm still finding the cause) and this morning it won't operate even with a new power supply. I'll be doing some further fault finding later as I have time.
One thing I must start to consider is purchasing a new Motherboard matching Processor and a new graphics card, it's been a few years since I looked at PC's and a lot has changed. I have little or no need for a new monitor or peripherals.
As I mainly do photo processing, a bit of gaming and the usual web surfing I need a reasonable all round machine ...
Any ideas on technologies or ideal combinations I should look out for?
