Hey guys, I was in the beginning of my journey (in the journey section, obviously) and my laptop bit the dust. This leaves me with only my wife's laptop to use maybe an hour or so a day. An hour or so a day, though, is not going to do it for me. So I took all my PC scraps and started piecing them together, trying to make something work. The only one I could get to work booted up with Windows 98 (I didn't know I had a HD with 98 on it. Creepy.) that would crash as soon as I got it booted up and logged in, and it was utilizing two power supplies and two motherboards, due to compatibility issues. It'd be really hard to explain.. Now I've made an agreement with my brother for a loan of $200 to try to build something that will allow me to run Photoshop, Illustrator, Chrome, and basic low-requirement programs. I already have a 500GB hard drive, so I don't need to purchase one, and I also have a CD drive, monitor, mouse, and keyboard. So, ultimately, all I need is a motherboard, CPU, and RAM. (Possibly video card, if necessary. I don't know a lot about all of this anymore. I used to when I was into building computers, but now I know jack. I don't know what makes different CPUs better than each other, or what makes the $100 motherboards better than the $50 ones. So it makes it terribly difficult to choose parts on my own. The laptop I had been using had these specs: AMD A4-5000 APU w/ Radeon HD Graphics (1.50GHz) 6.00 GB RAM That being said, I suppose I need a rig with at least 1.50GHz processor and 4-6GB of RAM. The $200 includes shipping, too. Keep that in mind. All help is appreciated!
