What would you all say is the hierarchy of needs for a media pc? Ex, 1. processor (dual or quad?) 2. RAM 3. Video Card, etc. ? I am struggling to find something under $600 that has everything I THINK I need. It would help to narrow down my needs a bit. I would build my own but I do not have time to learn EVERYTHING and do the shopping and ordering.
Thanks. I would do something like this if I build my own but I may just buy a pre-made. I have no idea what to look for in motherbords other than needing a certian number of PCI, PCIX1, and one PCIX16. I am also unsyre of the minimum processor as opposed to what would be unneccessary/overkill. I will not be gaming on this machine though. It is strictly media and internet.
