    By the questions I will be asking you can probably see that my knowledge of hardware is not very good, so please be patient, thanks.
    It is time for me to buy a new computer, I do NOT play many video games and none of the new ones that demand great hardware.
    More or less the only problem I have is that Firefox freezes too often, because I use quite a few add-ons, a lot of video software, a VPN and many tabs at the same time.

    Right now, the computer I am writing on has a CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz Wolfdale 45nm Technology

    With a: RAM 2,00GB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz (5-4-4-14)

    And Graphics: 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / nForce 620i (Acer Incorporated [ALI])

    And a HDD, no SSD

    I am using win 7 ulti 32 bit and will probably stick with it (I did a bit of research and found no real reason to change to 64 bít, where actually some of my software may no longer work…. ?)

    For my purposes should I get an i5 or an i7 4770 haswell cpu?
    A 630 or even a 640 Nvidia board?
    And I can get a HDD, or a HDD with an SSD….

    What do you suggest, given what I want to do? :confused:

    Thanks a lot for your time guys…
