hello, am looking for a bit of quick help here
i'm buying my dad a new computer and here is what i have so far...
this is NOT a super high end machine and he'll never play crysis let alone know what that even is
but he does like to mess around with the adobe master collection (video and images).
ONE THING HE IS REALLY ANAL ABOUT IS THAT THE COMPUTER IS QUIET! seriously, an extra 50 or 100 bucks to get it really quiet is money well spent in his mind.
western digital caviar 500 gig $80 - 3 year warranty
seagate barracuda 500 gig $80 - 5 year warranty
Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 Socket LGA775, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache, 45nm (Retail Box) (BX80570E8200) $200 - 3 year warranty
Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT?? 500mb, PCI-express
which 8800 card (GT, GTS or ULTRA) came out AFTER the others and turned out to be a better deal than the previous 8800's? i used to know but forgot
which motherboard would be good and by which manufacturer?
i guess this depends on the motherboard but a good matched pair of 2gig ram would be my guess.
ATX something right??
will get a 22" wide one, any good recommendations?
ATX case and nothing special, will check with what they have in the store.
any help in one or all area's is much appreciated, thanks!!!
