I'm Currently lookin for a new computer and this is what i've found:
It's the Dell Dimension 9200, specs are :
Os : Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor : Intel Viiv Core 2 Quad-Core Q6600 Processor (2.4GHz,1066MHz,8MB cache)
Ram : 2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
HD : 500GB Serial ATA RAID 0 Stripe [2x250GB 7200rpm drives with DataBurst cache]
GPU : 256MB nVidia GeForce 8600GTS graphics card
Optical Drive : 16x DVD +/- RW Drive
Dell 22" Black Wide Flat Panel
Price : £848.99
I'll be mainly using it for gaming and was wondering if it's going to be "future Proof" or atleast so for about 4-5 years.
I dont think ill be OC'ing as i know nothing about how to do it.
I also have a few questions :
What does the intel "Viiv" Processor have better then the same processor without ?
Bit of a silly question here but the 16x DVD +/- RW Drive does it mean i can copy and write DvDs ?
Is the 8600GTS going to be powerful enough to run games like UT3 and Crysis ?
Is the Q6600 going to be powerful enough to easily handle Next gen gaming ?
Is the ATA Raid 0 The High Performance HD ?
Does it seem Good value for money ?
Any Info Would be Helpful
