This thread is for those who are strickly PC techs and H/C gamers due to the nature of the thread itself and my personal need to come up with a
solution fairly quickly. I'm a gamer but been out of the industry coming up on 2 years; giving this, technology has probably nearly doubled when I
last built my ex-wifes PC 4 years ago.
I don't want to get into of why I shoudln't build my own PC, I can build one and have. Onward.
HELP a BROTHER OUT! LOL
So, this is for a small non-profit business PC that is extremly outdated (128mb of RAM on the Video card...I kid you not!!) and the software and task
we wish to perform is becoming outdated extremely quickly.
What we have currently is a Dell, not a bad machine but, I'm not a big fan of pre-builds due to the bloatware installed on them; I'm here to help
suggest to the leadership of the business I'm volunteering for of what would be the best choice given the amount of projects we want to accomplish
~Video and audio editing and processing
~using a projection system
~uploading and streaming of video online
The budget is between $800.00-1000.00 ($1,500.00 max, that's pushing it)
I'm at serious odds here of what company to suggest to purchase from i.e, Asus, Dell, Gateway (which I've heard are now crap), I won't touch an HP
if my life depended on it. I literally spent 6 hours scouring the web and come up with some great sites but I have never personally owned a big name
PC before and therefore have zero knowledge of their support system or otherwise.
I'm a gamer and the only thing idea I came up with is a mid-level DESKTOP 'gaming' system with:
~Processor: CORE i7 (due to it's power and functionality)
~RAM: 16GB of RAM
~Video Card: 2GB V-Card,
~HDD: 2TB HD (SSD would be new to me as I've never owned one, but would love to have one)
~MB: ????? ugh..my ex-wife has an awesome AsRock mobo and still fully functional.
~OS: Win7 Only if at all
Best tech support is high on the list due to the nature of the business, if this PC goes down, it will be crucial to get it repaired or replaced
ASAP!!! Like TOMORROW or within 3 days!
Guys, I need you to shred this out with me please as if it was you in my shoes, your job depends on it. ...no joke.
Thx and much appreciated with any suggestion you might have .. brainstorm this! if you will, agree to disagree but who knows what we can share or find
PS: I'm seriously shying away from Apple since most here know about Windows more than Apple and we do not have the time to spend on learning that OS
right now, nothing personal against Apple, it's a time factor.
