Comp. Techies.. give me some help here.
So I am back to the place where I am going to have to buy a new computer.
I have a few choices... However, here is one I am seriously thinking about.
Building my own computer. I have never done it before. I have installed memory and also installed a video card before.
I have done a little research concerning CPU's, Motherboards, etc, and want 1333FBS at the minimum and what may be a quad 2 or an I7 chip, however, as I have read around, I am not too impressed with the I7's yet.
I also want a 10,000 RPM hard drive (willing to have smaller drive for the speed as I have about 3 external hardrives laying around that I can attach for secondary files).
Lastly, I am looking at a 3 monitor flat screen setup.
Now, I know that I can build it, but I want to hear from those of you who know hardware. . . is it worth building it, or should I buy a prebuilt one? After all, I am going to have to buy windows for it as well, including Office. I can't budge on that as I need the OS for some of the work I do at school.
So what do you think? Is it worth it? and how inexpensive do you think I can build this things sans monitors.
