Afternoon all.
My bro, who is very old school, would like me to build him a new inexpensive system that he can hook up his 50" LED TV as well as his 8 year old monitor at the same time. He also wants lightscribe to print directly to his DVD's.
It's been about 4 years since I built my last computer, so I'm not really up on current components.
I have an AZZA Orion 202 Mid Tower Case laying around, but not much else.
Any suggestions for an inexpensive, fast starting, quality build?
Thanks for the help,
Glenn

Inexpensive? Well aslong as you have the tv you're one step there, and the monitor is that hdmi/dvi output or vga? And aswell as using light scribe is he going to be doing anything else?

He'll send me a picture of his monitor connection when he gets home later. But I would think many video cards can handle all 3 connections, HDMI, DVI and VGA. But, I'm not really sure since I've been out of the loop for awhile. And he does fairly simple stuff like making cards with printmaster software, copying CDs and printing directly on them with lightscribe. He does want a dvd burner so he can learn to copy and burn downloaded movies.
When I say inexpensive, I'm talking $400 to $500. What do you think?

Sure you could pick up a gpu that would allow that, for around 100bucks.
