Default Re: Semi Low to Mid Build.

stay away from maxtor hdds. i've only heard bad things from them. get a seagate or western digital drive.

you can save some money by getting a 5000 x2 or a 4400 x2 and oc it up to 6000 speeds.

also for that price get a 3870 512mb.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Thanx. Okay im swapping the Maxtor to a Seagate. I think im gonna leave the video card because im trying to stay under $1000 including a monitor. I got a LG 19" for $200... (Also gonna leave the CPU because i dont want to OC on a computer for work. (Not models and such so i dont need a quadro... lol.))

EDIT: I made the jump and upgraded one or two other things, including the video card. Take alook at the new system.
