Building a computer for work. Needs to be run 24 hours a day. Typically our systems last about 2-3 years. I'm hoping to better this average by at least a year or so.
There's a lot of new technology out here that I really don't think I need to care about. Should I care if it's a SATA or PATA drive? Speed isn't a requirement, just has to last long and have a cost benifit of building ourselves as opposed to just buying at local store.
We'll probably end up with DDR for memory, just because it's not going to be easy to find SDRAM in 3 years when it goes. Video card just needs to be a quality dual head. No big graphics capabilities requirements. Again, endurance is what we're after.
I want a good quality MB with a nice processor that will last. PS only needs to be enough to keep it running well.
Any recomendations on what I should be looking at? I want to start with MB and Processor and work from there.
