Yeah, looks like I'm going to air cool this, he knows near to nothing about computers.

I'm just going to give him a pretty good core i7 build, and see how he likes it, and upgrade later if he wants more.

He is pretty happy to know he can get it all for under 3000$.


I appreciate all the help from you guys.

I wouldn't put solidstate in there either

But I would put SAS harddrives in there.

2X Newegg.com - Fujitsu MBA3300RC 300GB 15000 RPM 16MB Cache Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Find a core i7 mobo with built in SAS controller.

Then stick a 1.5TB harddrive in there.

SAS drives are more for servers than a home pc. They are noisy and read/write almost the same speeds as SSD.

If the guy doesn't know anything about computers I would actually just put one hard drive in the computer. Its easier and he could always add more later.

^How is that easier? All he would have to do to save/install things on the other drive is very simply change where the current save/install area is, always in a drop down box...a monkey could do it. Don't knock monkeys, they can leave our atmosphere lol.

You underestimate the stupidity of ignorant computer users. I had a customer the other day that didn't know you could put files into a folder. I have a sneaking suspicion she wouldn't know how to install something to another HDD.

This.

Last year at Circuit City (RIP) I had a customer who came up to me with a flash drive in her hand.

"What's this do?"

Me: "It's a flash drive - you can use it to move files between computers"

She comes up to me a minute later with a 1GB and a 2GB

"What's the difference?"

Me: "This one with the 2 next to it holds twice as much, that's why it's more expensive.
"Twice as much what?"
Me: "Files..."
"Oh... ???"
Me: "Buy the 1, you don't need the 2"


facepalm

I had the same exact conversation with that woman afterward, except she already had it and didn't know what it did, haha.
