Re: First Computer Build. $1000 budget.
I'm pretty happy with the current i5 build.
I do enjoy gaming, I was just noting that I am not really trying to run crysis.
(Although, being able to do so would be nice.)
I play Everquest, which..if you are familiar with it..you know it is not graphically intense.
But as the expansions progress, it is becoming harder on my computer.
I currently have to play with all of the textures turned down.
The RAM I picked out in my last post does not fit the main 2200 socket, but it does support the 1600 socket.
Is that fine, or would a 2200 be better?
I'm not very familiar with RAM.
Also, would it be better to just stick with my 160GB hard drive and get a TB external?
I would like the portability of it.
Most of my friends have Western Digital External Hard Drives.
Hate to be repetitive, but thoughts/comments on new disc drives would be helpful.
The one in my eMachine gets stuck a lot, and is quite annoying.
Something else I wanted to bring up while I had attention here...
External Video Cards.
Can you turn any video card into an external one?
Just been curious about it.
