    9 replies, posted
hey guys I've been needing a computer for awhile now so I've finally started to search for a new one but to no avail. CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent AMD Phenom II X3 Triple-Core 2.8 GHz or greater RAM: 4 GB (Vista) or 2 GB (XP) Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater DVD ROM (Physical copy) Those are the minimum specs I was kind of hoping for. If anybody could help me out that would be great. my budget is about one grand but im not sure if I would need that much.
For 1k you can probably afford Core i7 or an am3 quad.
US or ? when are you ordering it
1k can barely get you an i7. i couldnt do it on mine without super suck somewhere else in the build
Yeah, an AMD quad sounds about right, do you need anything else, like a moniter, mouse, keyboard, or speakers? And you could get some nice stuff for 1000, much better than your minimum.
Well I've been looking at [url]http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4459462&CatId=2630[/url] It doesn't seem to bad although I would be buying an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT and a new power supply.
Build your own computer.
So you're in Canadaland? When do you plan on buying this?
Well I was hoping to have bought it by the end of summer. So in the next month or two.
Then wait until then; prices will have changed by then.
