I am planning to build a computer, for the first time, and I need some help and opinions.
Use: I plan to use the computer for HD movies, gaming, some video editing, photo editing, and internet and school work. Although I don’t play to many games, I do play some and would like to have a good graphics card. One of the main things I want to do is to be able to hook my computer up to my HD TV and use my computer to play blu-ray movies. I also want to keep in mind upgradeability, so I can add new and better parts.
Budget: $800.00 to $1,000.00.
With that, here is a list of the part I am considering:
Processor: I would like the 955 but it may be more than I need and its expensive, the 945 is my second choose.
