Your Monitor Resolution: N/A – Build from scratch
I will need speed and cooling! I think. I want to be able to run three performance sucking programs running at the same time in three different monitors and be the master of my programming/gaming/streaming music at the same time universe!
I am assuming I will need at least two terabytes of memory if not more by my current research ( I don't delete my save files and will be video editing).
I am assuming I will need space for upgrades in the future.
I would want decent to good graphics and sound- but probably wont instal any high end speakers. Monitors I'm open to higher end but don't need any movie-specific features such as 3D or Blue-ray.
Would love something flashy but performance comes first.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current PC was free and I've had a few promotions.
with most systems i would put two good 23 inch monitors on the gpu and one 23 inch monitor on the intel 4000 gpu. the intel gpu good for web and text.
if your going to save a lot of files look into online storage and or a small home nas.
also if your into audio...then install an asus 7.1 sound card and hook it up to your stero or pick up a good set of speaker. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
