how's it going?
i was hoping one of you guys could help this less informed semi - noob with building a comp.
i want an affordable comp, that will last me the next 3-4 years till i get out of law school and can afford to splurge. i want a comp for writing papers, surfing the net, email, etc. and a little bit of gaming. the most irksome thing about my current computer is that it takes forever to load windows and load programs. from what i have gathered, i need some more ram and such, but being that i've had my comp for 5 years now, i think its time i just purchase a new one. anyway on with the specs.
my budget is about a 1000. could you guys recommend me some parts? keep in mind that i'm going to keep my current mouse and keyboard. but i do want a new monitor....LCD flatscreen...my friend has told me i need multiple fans to keep the temperature of the cpu down and some gel wouldn't hurt...
for some reason i'm infatuated with getting a GIG of ram...but i probably don't need it right? i would rather keep my hard drive capacity low...40 gigs should be fine. i would really rather put the extra money into the speed of my comp...split along the cpu, ram, and video card...
thanks a lot!
