Hi,

lookin at the custom spec below from: click here

Use for surfing, burning, photography, not really a gamer.

Questions are:

Does anything look over / under specced for my uses?
I've put on a basic graphic card, should I look at an X550 or above instead?
Is the mobo better with nVidia or Radeon cards?

Thanks......

Looks like it will handle all that you said that you will throw at it and more.

Thanks...

Should the motherboard be customisable (if I learn how to mod in the future)?

Also - any views on graphics card manufacturer best suited to this board?

Cheers
