recommending a new pc spec

Have tried this on the consumerwatch forum but no replies, so try again here
Some friends are asking me to recommend a new pc spec for them, whilst I am ok on most aspects i.e. ram, hard disk size, sound card, rewriters etc etc. I am concerned about trying to recommend a pc with as much future proofing as I can.
These friends are completely new to pc's I do not believe they will be avid gamers, just the run of the mill stuff including photos and possible videos.
I cant decide to recommend duo core or Quad core processors, Am thinking about a Dell machine, what do you think Duo or Quad

Dual core Intel will be plenty
