I'd like some suggestions for possible systems that I'm building (2 of them).
The primary use of the computers will be to get infected (2 teenagers!)
One likes to game, with some interest in music and mostly hangs out a MySpace (17 years old).
The other likes music, with some interest in gaming. Mostly tries to download free music and visit porn sites (19 years old).
I'm looking for systems that will last a while (as they move out, I'd like them to take a decent system with them) - but cost is also a factor.
I prefer Intel chipsets - but am fast becoming a doubter of their Vista support. Suggestions/opinions about the nVidia nForce chipsets?
I'd like a mobo that has some upgradeability for processors and has Vista drivers (Asus is starting to disappoint me also).
I'd like a processor that can game now - but has the potential to run games in the future (I'm an Intel fan).
Would like a video card that will handle current games (but DX10 would be a plus at a reasonable price) - I like the nVidia video chipset.
As price is a factor, I'll also consider package deals such as those from Tiger Direct, etc.
Thanks for your input!
