After having spent almost 6 years with my old computer I think it's finally time to move on!
I've got around 1000-1100 (about 1270-1400$) and would like to ask you if it would be smart to spend those on a new computer now (I've really got urges for some hardcore gaming again lol) and if you could help putting me the pieces together? I need everything apart from the Screen, Keyboard and Mouse.
Generally it would mostly be for gaming, music, videos, some photoshopping and normal Internet use!
I'm still in a dilemma between Core 2 Duo and AM2, but I think with my price range it's better to go for a Core 2 Duo E6600?
Now I don't really know a lot about Intel mainboards and RAM compability, since until very short ago I was convinced about getting an AMD rig.. =[ So it would be nice of you to help me out there
I'm thinking of 1-2gb Corsair low latency RAMs, are those still good?
For the HD I guess everything around 160-200gb should do fine, or would it be smart getting those Raptors from WD with 10.000 rpm?
Oh and one more question: I've got a ATI Radeon 9000 with an AGP slot, would I be able to use it in the new computer to wait for the G80 series, or do I have to get a new graphic card right away?
I hope I didn't ask too many stupid questions and that you can help me =)
Thanks in advance,
