Which processor would one use to build around? Intel or AMD? Which model, etc? Am not a gamer. Box would be used for surfing, email, Office apps, storing and viewing/listening to photos and music. Any help is appreciated.

If you are not playing games/running cad/photoshop get the cheapest for your buck items if you are going to build one.. Honestly for what you are doing just buy a cheap media PC and add memory and an external harddrive..

Intel E6750. About 195 bucks on NewEgg. Should hold up for a long time. It's going to run 50 more dollars than an AMD of similar ability, but it's not near the power whore, doesn't put out as much heat (think longer lasting components), and it can be overclocked should you desire in the future.
