First time computer builder here looking for opinions.
I am most interested in longevity and the ability to upgrade piece by piece in the future.
I will use this computer for light photo editing and large quantity storage of photos, duplicating and storing large quantities of both audio and video, YouTube, I-Tunes, Google Earth, News and Weather , General Web Surfing, and so on.
I have already gone over my intended budget, but am fine with that if the quality is worth the money.
Right now I am at almost $900.00
So here is what I have chosen, and would like to know what you think, good, bad, and the ugly.
Also is this everything I will need or have I missed something?
I will not need a Monitor, Keyboard or Mouse.
One other question is will the Intel HD Graphics 2500 in the CPU do what I have described, or will I need a GPU?
Thanks in advance, and Have a Great Day.
