    I am helping a very poor friend upgrade to a new compter. She is a graphic
    designer but does not do animation. I have built a computer or two over
    the years, but am confused when I go to Aberdeen and look at all the mother
    boards. She needs a good quality, reliable very basic computer that will
    use a Pentium 4 or AMD Atheon chip. 1 gig of memory. No onboard video or
    audio. We will get a video card. A good aray of connections USB etc. I
    find the present selection of boards to be very confusing. She uses
    photoshop a lot with 30MB max files. Any suggestions.

    Thank You in advance

    Have a look here. Also look at the Asus site and others and then check
    reviews

    You will never go wrong with Abit, Asus or Intel boards.
