Hi Guys! I've talked about it for some time now and I'm finally going to do it: buy an all new rig! I could really use your advice as I'm no hardware guru. It'll be used for pretty much everything: games, home cinema, 3D modelling, heavy image processing, surfing, etc. I want it to be FAST!, i'm using my old P3 lappy to do all those things and I'm tired of waiting for tasks to finish. What I was thinking: CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo (maybe even Quad, would it be worth it?) GFX - nVidia (what's really good but still value for the money?) mobo - no idea, help! PSU - again no idea RAM - should 2 Gigs do it? (advice on exact kind would be appreciated) HDD - at least 500 GB (again advise) OS - time to try Vista (Home Premium?) sound - no idea, something decent to plug into my kickass Yamaha receiver screen - big LCD :hmm: case - help! fans - help! DVD - +/-RW Hmm, checking the list I see I know even less than I thought! Well any advice is appreciated. This'll be the first rig I assemble myself so nothing too complicated please. Also I live in Luxembourg and will probably buy in Germany, so any good computer stores/online dealers would also help.
