MONITOR RESOLUTION: 900x1440 and samsung 40 in lcd tv
1--what i am looking for is a computer that will houses all my media. I will be using it to watch movies through my LCD tv, so I need a video card with HDMI output (or DVI with HDMI adaptor with sound ).
2---Also, I plan to use it as a '' server'' (Not sure if it's the good word, english not my first language). I mean I want to store on it all my musics et some files, so my roommates and I will be able to listen to that music and accessinf thoses files on our laptops via wireless.
3--- Il Will conect it to my sound system in the linving room (so it's really a multimedia purpose)
4---I'll be conecting my printer on this one too.
As you can see, the purpose of this computer is really to manage all my media. It'might be a good idea to get a wireless motherboard? I have no preference over intel or Amd, I don't know that stuff enough. It will be vista or 7 on it , don't know yet
I allready have a 600G external HD, so maybe 300G or so would be ok for the internal one
Please feel free to give me some advices, or if you allready use a computer like this (multimedia sharing center), give me your thoughts.
I am not going to attempt to wade through the French - I took a quick look at the front page and could not even tell which buttons went to some of the components. Instead I will just share with you the US$461 budget build I did a few weeks ago based on prices at newegg. Perhaps you can find the same or comparable parts.
Total Cost - $472 - AR and before OS, shipping – where applicable, and taxes
Note that you could get buy with a few cuts if this turns out to be too expensive - although none of which I recommend as they will affect performance:
- The video card provides good mainstream (as compared to enthusiast) performance on video games - you could drop down to an nVidia GT 220 or 240 for basic media functions, but very limited game play
-You could cut the memory in half and get two 1 GB sticks, again should not affect media but will affect some game play - which can be minimized by not multi-tasking - but still will have an affect - more significant on some games than others
- The case is an excellent case on sale for a low price, you might have to replace it to get the same cost for a case
-The power unit also was on sale and so was a good buy. With only a basic video card, like the one above or less, you could cut to 400w. Make sure you get a decent brand though like Antec or OCZ.
-One caveat, I don't have experience connecting large TV monitors. The 4670 and GT220 will support resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 but I don't know if there is a size limit.
