  • PC Assistance....Major Help Needed

    I am in the process of buying a new PC for myself...

    But, I know absolutely nothing about PC's...

    Also..I will likely need this shipped to China..so, I want to know if that complicates the situation...

    I remember that BBZ and Damtoft assisted Winston...I have been looking at UBID..but, I would appreciate people's help in determining what the specs should be, models, fucntionality and the like..

    Thanks for the help...

      It would help greatly if you tell us what you want to do with it. Besides dl porn that is.

          Gonzo-

          Acutally, what I will mostly do on it is work from home...spreadsheets...

          But, I will also be cruising the internet and play the occasional on-line game...

            if you're buying from the states and shipping to china, you may pay more in shipping than you do for the pc.

                Video is huge and takes a long time to process. I knew it would take up some space, but when I did my first download, i was shocked at how big the files were. About 50 min of video equated to 9.7 GB.

                If you really do video, then I suggest 2.4Ghz or higher, 1GB RAM, and at least a 180 GB HD depending on how much you want to store. Also make sure the PC has a good video card, at least 64MB, and a firewire card.

                    if you're gonna do video, might as well fork over the jack for a DVD writer. I wouldn't think you need a re-writeable, but that's up to you. Talk to BBZ or one of the other guys that are really up to date on this stuff, because I think a new dual layer DVD writer just came out, or will be soon.
