I would like to get a new computer. The one I have can only be used for web browsing,email,and playing W.O.W.
and a few non taxing games that are only online. I have some pictures and a few music files. I would like to be
able to have a lot of music and play it while gaming. I don't edit now but, I'm not sure what I will be doing with
the new pc. I do know I'd like to have that ability as well as watch movies, videos, tv,(on pc monitor) burn
dvd's and play any game available now or in the near future with high settings. I'm mostly a gamer at
the moment and I do a lot of multitasking. I want to be able to do just about anything on this pc.
I definitely want a quad core.
I have looked at the Intel core i7 and thought about purchasing it if I found one at a reasonable price.
If that isn't a good idea even at reasonable price I think I'll go for an AMD quad core. I just can't decide on
Phenom or Phenom II or whether am2 or am3 would be better. I did read where DDR3 wasn't really worth
buying unless it's cheap. But, would the option be a good idea for later? I want the ability to upgrade but
would prefer not to have to do so for a few years if possible. At least not the mobo, cpu or gpu.
I'd like to be able to spend in the vicinity of $1000.00 including a monitor.
Should I buy or build. I know with building I can get exactly what I want and quality parts. But can I build
at the price I stated? I don't trust Ibuypower or Cyberpower.
