Hey guys, I've been out of the loop for a while, but it's about time to upgrade this thing. I'm using a *cough* emachine
and its carried me so far.
I was checking out Monarch's website (as was suggested in another post), and I see their prices seem very good!
I'm not really going to be doing any serious gaming on this computer, but I the kind of person that wants it just to have it.
So I've been looking at the Intel E6600, Asus P5B MB. HDD I have plenty of, case is no biggie (about $100 for a decent looking one)...
I need some video card and sound card suggestions.
I must have a tv tuner video card so I can record and edit videos (for personal use of course).
For sound, I would like a 5.1 system.... possibly a logitech, so I'll need a sound card for that.
For memory - I can't stand a slow machine... whats good enough to run photoshop, firefox, edit a video or 2, and a few other apps without driving my fist through the monitor? 2GB? 4GB?
Thaks in advance!
