I would like a budget web browser.

I presently have an 80GB HDD, using only 20GB, 60GB free.

My HDD is dual-boot configured, running Windows XP Pro & Ubuntu 11.10,
with an AMD Sempron 2800+ @ 1.6Ghz.

My $645 budget is the absolute max, I would love to spend less.

Questions:

Do I need an i3-2100, or could I be just as happy with the Celeron G530?

Do I need 4GB ram, or 8GB...I am willing to spend for the larger ram if it would help.

How much HDD do I need? Could I have just an SSD?

What is the difference between H61/H67/HM67 motherboards?

Should I run 32-bit, or 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium?

Thanks a million, I really like your forum!
