Continuing on my quest to get a new computer to replace my wheezing laptop, I have done a bunch of research lately, customized systems on different sites and have finally made two choices: It will be a PC…and I will build it myself! :dance:
After toiling for a bit over getting a PC vs. a Mac, I decided to stay with PC mostly because I’m a gamer. I don’t want to buy all new Mac-version games and I’d rather not try to run my Windows games via an emulator or Apple’s Boot Camp. Maybe I’ll get a Mac at some point in the future but not anytime soon.
So Chaz said he would help me with the details, since he has built computers before. I already know what specs I want, of course, but he’ll have to advise me on which brands to choose. We already have DVD/CD-RW drives, now I just need the rest. Cake, right? XD
My first purchase may very well be this drool-worthy case by In Win: the Allure. Quite girly, I know. If the sparklies end up being too much for me my second choice is the Alpha360, which is from the same series.
Neither are “full” towers, but rather compact and small. It means I’ll have to make sure the components I buy will fit in there, hehe, but I’m not too worried unless a component that I really want is too big. :( Hopefully I won’t run into that problem, I think it should be ok though.
I’ll probably make a running list of things I want as a separate page on here and check things off as I get them. :) I’m really excited, hopefully I’ll save some money too. :D
