Re: Need new computer!! Tips please!!
That HP has some pretty nice options for you. No matter what processor you choose, they're all high performance dual core CPUs. For memory, I would choose 1GB DDR2-533MHz dual channel SDRAM (2x512). Any higher, it would add more cost to it. For the hard drive, I would stick with a 80GB 7200 rpm SATA Hard Drive unless you want more storage. Don't get the HP media devices that it ask for . Probably a useless peice of junk. For the DVD ROM, I like the Double Layer 16X DVD +/-R/RW drive because it's a DVD RW and CD RW in one. You don't need a secondary drive. For video card, this is a good one to pick, 256MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce 6600, TV-Out and DVI. For the sound, it you're not to into that, then get the integrated one.
