i'am being asked what is the best all around computer?something good for games, video, the office, music, burning, or whatever else they may want to do.
so i now pose the ultimate question to you the ones with the experince in daily dealings with each and every product nessacery to produce such a machine.
my "perferect" computer
1)would not crash.
2)could eaisly be overclocked.
3)awsome for the latest and even the not yet released games.
4)burn disks in the wink of an eye.
5)edit, copy, and transform video effortlessly.
6)and yet tend to all the busisness's needs.
okay you get the idea a computer that can do anything!
!!EXCEPT BREAK THE BANK!!
so here's the question:
what are the best all around components for such a system???
the "perfect" computer?
manufactures dosent matter. just the products that work the best together to come as close as possible to the "perfect" computer.
to all those who respond a hearty thank you!<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikace on 03/15/02 10:57 PM.</EM></FONT></P>
Well your obviously going "Top of the Line" You could wait for the 64-Bit amd "Hammer" In your case maybe get the Highest P4 chip available...I guess the Northwood 2.2 ghz...not really into over clocking but "FATBURGER" has gotten his to 2.5 ghz.. i guess Enermax Power Supply... Crucial, corsair, samsung memory.. GeForce4 ti4600 Video Card.. There really is no answer to your question the answer's i give you would probly be valid for 4 months if anything..new stuff comes out all the time that's better then the last. Windows XP Professional has been running fine for me... has never Failed or Hung at anytime...I guess that would be the OS of choice. ... you would probly want something in the 120GB range..for a Hard Drive..
Be more specific with your Question...maybe i can help you alittle better....Some people like AMD (like me) some people like Intel Pentium CPu's.... AMD XP processors give you a good Bang for your buck... PENTIUM is a bit pricey and doesn't blow away AMD... in my case go with the AMD T-bread Line... which should be out in a month or two..
