Hey everyone, after actually thinking about how much my computer will cost, I think I may be going overboard. I was going for this or similar spec: amd athlon 4400+ 1024mb 256mb 7800 gtx graphics expensive looking case Really good sound card not to metion the expensive cooling system i will need, the electric bill, etc. I dont think I will need all this, after all, im wont do much besides (if not playing games) chatting on MSN, listening to music(im getting a hi-fi soon, so I will use that instead of the computer) , having ad-aware pro running and browsing the internet, maybe using office very rarely, burning a music cd, or copy from dvd drive to dvd re-writer and en/decoding video/audio. If I do play games, I wont be playing the latest games, such as doom 3 or far cry. I think currently am looking forward to be able to play roller coaster tycoon 3 (im quite the roller coaster fan), as my current crappy computer cannot play that . Maybe even designing my own car for the NFS games (underground 1 if poss, hot pursuit 2 for sure). dont forget that I will end the applications that I do not need while playing games. Thanks.
