Getting a new pc need help
Ok, i'm gonna be getting a new PC and was wondering if you guys could help me. I'm currently running an AMD 750MHZ with 256 ram from 1999. I'm not really into gaming, but do burn a lot of DVD's...from video downloaded (dont have a cam corder). The only video editing I'll do is spliiting a joining. I have a large MP3 collection and burn a lot of CD's. My question lies in things like the Video card, Sound Card, and RAM. What Sound/video card would suit my needs? From the research i've done so far, i'd be spending 40-55 on the video card, and 20-40 on the sound card. I'm a novice when it comes to the RAM...Rambus, DDR, what's the difference and what's best for me. Finally, it seems to be cheaper to buy the components and assemble them myself. My brother in law is a programmer for the Navy and already told me he could do that. If that's the case, anyone know of where to find the cheapest parts: Motherboard/CPU combo, RAM, Video Card, Sound Card... I already have a hard drive and DVD burner. I'll need a case too...thanks for your help.
