big difference between a $600 pc and a $1200 pc.
ok, I'm a new computer builder. I've always been tweaking computers, whether it is installing new ram, new hard drives, installing Operating Systems, so instead of buying a dell like i usually do, i figured that I'd just build my own and save some money. But I need some help.
First of all, which brands are the best for the following?
2. Processor (I'm pretty sure I want Intel from what I've read about)
4. Video Card (
5. Ram Memory
6. Hard Drive (SATA or IDE)
7. LCD Monitor
Also, I'm not looking for budget parts/brands. I'm a light gamer, Like the Sims 2, Starcraft, Warcraft III, Rollercoaster Tycoon Games, I will eventually buy Starcraft 2. Also, I do some small photo editing.
Suggestions for brands, types, sizes of the computer parts would be awesome.
