Ok guys and gals. I am in desperate need of a new up to date computer. What I have now is old school. I mean Apple IIE old school. I am from the boston area and I have found a company that custom builds computers. Their website allows you to pick what you want and then they'll build it for you. It is called pcsforeveryone.com. I have chosen them because they are close to where I live and they seem to offer many options.
I plan on buying the monitor, keyboard and mouse at a later time. All I need at this time is the computer. I want a something fast (of course). I will be using it for watching movies, downloading music, phoography, and some (not much) gaming. I have a cable set up. I need something which will allow fast download speeds, and be multi-task friendly.
Here are a couple of things I have been looking into:
- p4 3ghz 800 mhz w/ ht tech
- motherboard with SATA compatability, 3500 or greater ram speed
- mid tower case w/ front usb and firewire ports, power supply, 80 to 92 mm fans
- DDR or DDR2 ram at least 512 w/ 3200 or greater speed
- ethernet 10/100/1000
- dvd rom/cd-rw/dvd-rw
- video card with agp, dvi output
- sound card 24 or 32 bit, pci
How does that sound? I am willing to spend at max $1200. Those are just some options I was looking into. Can anyone build something comparable or better under that price tag? Check out the website and look at the options. Please help.
