I am new to this forum and know very little about computers. Please forgive my ignorance in computer terminology and latest and greatest technology. The last time I purchase a computer was some ten years ago with upgrades in 2001.I need help in putting together a completely new kick [bleep] machine that is not going to burn out on me.
About the case. Would like to have a cool looking case, with a power source of 550 watts plus, several fans with front end combo multi media card hookup, USB, and PCI ports. I use small digital cards for my camera, not sure what they are called it, but would like to be able to insert card into the front of my computer for file transfer.. I think it is come sort of card reader?
I am looking to purchase a multi task computer and will also be using it for gaming (World of Warcraft), video editing, and to watch videos, so I guess I will need a good video card. I would like to have a decent sound card for music and I would like to able to watch digital videos with the option of running it through my TV set. I will also require a monitor. About the monitor. I have had others tell me flat screen monitors for gaming sucks because of graphics issues. Would like to hear opinions/recommendations for those with experience.
I have a budget of $1,200 to $1,500 to include the monitor and could go a little higher for a kick [bleep] machine. Optional equipment cordless mouse and keyboard. I already have a printer and scanner.
Thanks for the help
