Windows 7: Building Your Own System

20 Nov 2009   #21

windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

I always wanted a system that would better edit video. I kept seeing all these gaming rigs advertised for 2K+. A year or so ago I thought why not build my own.

Really it took literally no time at all. A few weeks of research and a perusal of new egg. The build was done in a day. And I got everything right the first time.

Then last Christmas I also built my son one with no problems.

Details of my 1st build are on my blogspot

For research I used five sites: thevideoguys, Mechbgone, mysuperpc, maximumpc, and new egg.

Just jump into it, no need all this waiting. It really is too easy.

Advice on building a system
Not sure if this belongs here, or in Chillout. I am looking into building a system form my sisters husband. I gave her an estimated price of $450 to $500. He is going to be using it on their new 32" LCD TV as the monitor. This is mainly going to be a web surf/flash gaming, and not a lot of 3D...

System Building
When you finally decide it's time for a new computer, what does that mean? Do you replace a part at time? Do you perhaps replace a suite of parts (motherboard, RAM, CPU)? Are you the guy who replaces everything at once? I would like to be that last guy (build entirely new system), but I'm more...

Building New System
Hey guys :) I'm thinking of "reviving" an old Windows XP pc I have. So, I'm just curious - I'm on a TIGHT budget, VERY TIGHT at that! I was wondering, what's a budget CPU that's fair in performance? The same for a GPU and HDD (has to be IDE though.) I have experience in building PC's, so don't...
