This forum looked like a great place to get some of my questions answered. I am wanting to buy and build my own computer. I have had a laptop for the past five years, and it is time to upgrade.
I have been searching around the net and trying to find good deals and such.
Here is what I want:
: Chenming 602 Case with Full Window (Black)
: 160 Gig (maybe SATA)
: 8x DVD/RW Drive
: at least 128 MB card
: SoundBlaster 5.1
: at least 512 MB
But I am a little confused when it comes to Motherboards and Processors.
Here are some questions that I have:
- What kind of Motherboard should I get to provide the proper performace for the other hardware that I listed?
- What processor should I get? AMD? Intel?
- Is a SATA hard drive really worth it? Or should I stick with IDE?
- Where is the best place to get help in my town? Fry's? Compusa? Smaller business?
I may have other questions as I near the puchasing of my computer.
Thanks for you help!
