        Re: Computers

        huh theres a lot of choices out there...i personally say that its definatly better to build your own, cheaper and better than any store bought one, as for parts, it really depends on what your doing, if your just surfing the web and doing homework type stuff then you don't need any thing super beastly, but if your going for gaming, i'd suggest that you go for an AMD processor like, AMD Athlon 64 3400+, and either go nVidia, or ATI for graphics, but for the rest of the stuff, theres to many name brands to list, go to this site, and look for the top hardware. that'll get you some good the way, this is my first post...hopefully its intellegent enough :)

                Umm, a "beast" computer? *sigh* When I first read this post, I thought it was a spoof.

                Firstly, if you have dreams of hacking some huge supercomputer then stop reading right now, get your current computer, put it back in the box, get a refund then buy yourself a console gaming system. Not only will it not happen, but your butt will get caught and you will have a one way ticket to jail for a long time with a cell mate who is probably much bigger than you...and you can take a guess what will happen then.

                Now, as for the actual computer. What do you want it to do specifically? How much money do you have to spend? Are you willing to go with baseline till you have money for more/better things come out so you can upgrade to that? These are all factors when building a computer. Honestly I have yet to see a company that builds computers that I would purchase from.

                Let's start with the O/S. A good gaming platform is Win2k. The drivers are not always as up to date as XP, but I have used every windows platform, and XP draws too many resources for gaming if that is where you are headed. You could also invest in Longhorn which is a 64bit O/S instead of the 32bit Win2k is. They also makes a nice server platform if you do not know how to use a Unix/Linux based system. If you do know how, then I would definitly recommend Linux for the server.

                Now you can do some research. is a good site as well as pricegrabber which was mentioned in a previous post. Remember what I am about to say.

                Always, always, always build your computer around your processor(s) and motherboard. AMD right now is ahead in the gaming platform(in both price and power), where Intel is ahead in the server aspect of the market. Research the processors till you find what you like. You will need a power supply that puts out enough power to support your board, and you will need a case that your board fits into. There are plenty to choose from. Get the recommended ram for your motherboard(such as DDR 4400 if that is the speed it asks for). 2 gig is honestly more than enough for anyone, unless you are an engineer or someone who uses other graphic/memory intensive programs.

                If you are just browsing the web or running a server a 32MB videocard is enough. Gaming you want to invest in a 128 minimum. 512 cards are coming out, and one is currently available from Nvidia, though I personally prefer ATI over Nvidia.

                Soundcard, always go with soundblaster. I would go with an Audigy, but it is not needed that high since a Live! has EAX as well.

                Lastly the harddrives. IDE works however the seek time is much lower than SCSI or RAID. RAID is expensive to have in comparison to SCSI and both have a quick seek time.

                I hope this helps.
