I have about $2000 to spend on a new PC and I have an idea of what I need, but I am not totally sure. Here are a couple of links to PC's that caught my eye. V2 Premier at Shop NBCDell XPS 600 at Dell.com
The V2 comes with a ton of software but I'm not sure if the Hardware is up to par. It also comes with printer, D-cam and other extras, but I don't want to sacrifice Performance for stuff that I already have anyway. They make the XPS sound hot, then you find out they are talking about the one that costs $5000, the link is for the base model. I'm curious how good the base model fits my needs.
I have read lots of reviews, but have found nothing that addresses what I am looking for, and quite frankly, I just don't know enough about the components to make an informed decision.
I would be totally thankful if someone thats Component Savvy would check these out, and tell me what you think. Or if you can point me in the direction of a PC that will fit my needs, that would be cool to.
What I want/need:
-at least 200GB Hard Drive
-dual-layer DVD Drive plus another drive
-at least 19in LCD Monitor
-The fastest Processor I can get for budget
I will be using it for....
-Web site building and maintaining
-Graphics Editing(I use Gimp daily)
-Multi-Media (not real heavy, mainly pictures)
-School (Web development, Software development, or related areas)
-Email, blog, chat, file sharing, etc....
Oh Yea, I am not a Gamer, but I am an extreme multi-tasker!
Thanks in Advance, I will return the favor in any way I can.
