About 6 months ago, I spent about $800 updating my computer with new RAM, video card, a pci and pciex cards, Windows 10, and new hard drives. I've swapped out the data cables and daisy chains but it still constantly freezes and crashes. It's about 9-10 years old and I think it's had it. So I want to buy a new pc but I don't want to buy a lemon so I was wondering if people here can help me choose one that has a good reputation for durability.
Right now, my computer has 12 internal hard drives and 7 externals. Each is either 1Tb or 2Tb. I store video files on them. What I'm looking for is a computer that has the capacity to hold between 12Tb-16Tb (3 or 4 hdds) inside the computer cabinet. I don't do gaming. I copy my videos onto external hard drives and connect them to a Micca and watch them on my tv. The only other thing I do with my pc is go on-line to check my email and Google things, etc. I understand that today's computers can be connected to a tv, so that would be a great feature for me too. But, basically, I just want enough internal hdd space to store my video files.
Since I just spent $800 updating my existing computer, money is scarce, so cheaper is better but I don't want refurbished, just a new one. I bought my own Windows 10 Home disk during my updating so Windows doesn't have to be installed, I can do that myself, if that would make a pc cheaper.
My hdds are now in JBOD configuration and I don't want to set up a RAID array with the new one.
Can someone give me some recommendations?
