hi guys, i was wondering if i could pick your brains on a computer i want to build, what im basically looking for is something very fast for internet, i have 50MB connection, dual monitors, the only thing i will be doing is live betting and playing online poker..... my budget is around 1000-1400 pounds sterling.. please could u help me with this build.
many thanks for ur quick reply, thanks for ur input, much appreciated, if i was to change the case, psu, and the processor, would it be worth spending the money saved on that to buy an SSD? would there be a noticable performance increase and speed with that?
If you're planning on surfing the net and playing poker online, then an SSD will not provide much of a noticable increase in performance in those tasks. You will see a decrease in startup time for windows, and your browser (and betting Application) will open faster- that's about it. If those two things are worth $200, then go for it.
Edit: Pages won't load faster, nor will data update faster from the web- it will just decrease the time it takes to start the browser from 5-10s to 1-2s.
Here is what I have to say. Cut back that money towards the G15 keyboard and put it into a 1366 Socket X58 chipset i7 processor. i7's do a great job better then 1156. G15 keyboard is for gaming and viewing real time temps. Internet dont need that. So put that money towards a i7.
