A friend of mine has asked me to recommend a system for him. He wants a Pentium-based system and his budget is $1300. He wants a 3.4 GHz processor. My question is whether to go with Socket 478 or with the new Socket T. Parts he needs:
4) video card
8) sound card (on-board or third-party)
I'm not too familiar with Pentium-based systems, so could you guys help me put one together? I'd appreciate it if you could make one based on Socket 478 and another based on Socket T (LGA775). Obviously, the best parts for the dough.
