I have about $1500.- $2000. to spend on either an upgrade or new pc. I have done some repairs and replacment parts b4 so it's not like I don't know my way into and around the inside of a tower.
At present I have a Systemax 3.06 ghz P4, with 1.5 Gig of ddr, 300 or 350 watt PS and then all my other peripherals. It is the only Intel I have. All my other pcs are AMD. I wish to purchase or rebuild/ upgrade this system. I would like to get the most bang for my buck because my wife will kill me if I ask to upgrade again within 2 years.
Please feel free to recommend a set-up utilizing my existing tower, or do you recommend an outright purchase of a complete system. (which I thought wasn't a good option money wise)
AMD 64, 64 x2, FX-60????
Ram????? How much????
This system will be used for minimal business functions, dvd burning, internet, minimal multi-media. No digital editing, no major office, no major graphics, and no gaming.
