Hi guys, I'm really quite bad when it comes to computers. Like i know the basics of ram hdd and stuff, but i have absolutely no clue about video cards mobo's ect ect.
My current computer is a p3 733mhz which i got like 7 years ago lol it can barely run the programs that i require for school work, so i thought its time i should upgrade.
I currently have 2 packages I'm considering.
a pentium package
and an AMD package
i plan to mainly use this computer for uni work, i use programs such as maya, photoshop, after effects ect at uni and want a decent proccessor to handel these programs with ease. i also plan to use this computer for maybe a bit of gaming, i'm not really after a computer to run the latest games at the best resolution and best settings, but one thats sufficient enough to run them.
I was after some advice to which system i should get for my requirements,
AMD AM2-940 x2 Dual Core 4600+
Intel Dual Core 3400 CPU
Also was wondering if the video card that comes with it (256MB Nvidia GF 7300GS 3D PCI-E) is good enough for my requiments, if not which one should i upgrade to.
thanks in advance for any answers!
