I'm getting close to putting together a new PC. I'm going to piece together some of my current hardware - CD-ROM, floppy etc and someone just gave me and IBM CD-rw/DVD combination drive - pretty cool, huh! I even have an old Compaq Presario that I can gut and recycle the case (it has 3 drive bays, floppy and 2 USB and 1 firewire on the front). I'll need a new motherboard, processor etc.
My specific question is . . . will on-board video and sound cards work for me? I don't do animation or music only Photoshop. I was advised locally that on-board would work quite well for my purposes and save $$ too as I have a tight budget. But I would like some feedback from SitePoint members before making a decision. Anyone? Thanks. earther
