Re: Which computer kit is better?
At first it's just going to be my copy of Windows XP 32-bit. I'll upgrade to Windows 7 or the like later.
And I don't think there is a big difference in price between quad and hex core with the AMD. The only reason I'm getting 6 core is because the AMD 6 core is basically the equivalent of Intel's quadcore in reference to editing HD, from what I read anyway.
And I thought the case I was getting was considered cheap? 50 bucks. Includes a front fan and has room for two additional case fans if I ever need it. I don't have any cases lying around.
Again, my main concern is the mobo...I know it's a budget mobo with few add-ons....but basically it has all the slots I'll need (one for my firewire PCI card, one for a cheap graphics card). My main concern is someone mentioning that it only supports up to 1333mhz RAM speed. Again, I'm not sure what RAM speed dictates in reference to the overall setup. Will it be a HUGE impact- enough to spring for a board 50 dollars more?
Also, can someone recommend a PSU to me? Will 500W be good enough for my setup? What's a reliable model for around 40-50 bucks?
