I'm having to create my "Dream Computer" The instructions: Type of CPU, RAM, speed, monitor, printer, peripherals, color, size, shape, etc. You want to be as detailed as possible in order for your instructor to have an exact idea of the "dream" computer you want to purchase. Where did you find this system and how much does the total system cost? Where did you find the information? (Cite source) Why did you choose this system? Identify two other systems that you researched as you looked for the system that you want to purchase. What will you use it for? How will this system meet your

    I don't know what best RAM, CPU, or monitors are! ...I'm sort of playing it by hear. So here's what I got: What is my dream computer? Well, it has to be FAST. Black with neon colors splattered on it would look epic. Though that is optional. Keeping my budget of $3,000.00 in mind, I’ve selected a CPU, RAM, monitor, and printer to look into further. For one thing, I would start building my dream computer by purchasing the Intel - Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66 GHz Processor - Socket T LGA-775 CPU. I found one for only $95.09 at Best Buy. Though, keep in mind that, by the time I’m looking to actually buy one it will probably be a lot less. Then, I would get an ATTO - ExpressPCI UL5D Dual Channel Ultra 320 SCSI Controller RAM. This currently costs $386.96 at Best Buy. Now for the monitor and printer! And of course a Smart Temp Monitor is the way to go. This is currently only $31.87 at Best Buy. Lastly, I would get the HP - Deskjet 3520 Wireless All-In-One Printer. This is currently $99.99 at Best Buy.

    Some questions that need answered are what you plan to use the computer for: Business (Word Processing, Email, Web Surfing, etc.) or gaming. Would you be using the computer for streaming movies or watching dvds? If you plan on just doing basic functions on a computer, some aspects are not as important. However if you plan to play graphics intense games, edit movies or photos, you need more RAM and hard drive space. For printers, will you be printing mainly in color or black and white. You might want to look at ink costs. HP's are expensive in relation to the ink cost, but in turn they are great for printing photos. Did you want a HD monitor for watching BlueRay dvds? Then you also need a computer that has a BlueRay dvd drive. BTW the ATTO - ExpressPCI UL5D Dual Channel Ultra 320 SCSI Controller RAM is for RAID not exactly what the instructor was looking for.

    Having a budget of $3000 for a PC is kind of overkill -- you can get away with most needs for much less unless you're already something of a "hardcore" PC gamer, an artist doing a lot of 3D work or CAD, someone that does a lot of multimedia processing (daily encoding, editing raw footage, broadcast graphics, etc.), or someone that wants to just splurge on the latest to extend the life of their investment. For example, what kind of games do you play? If it's something on Facebook or Newgrounds, you don't need something like SLI or RAID to do that stuff with. Finally, most people don't build their own PCs. They usually get them off the shelf at places like Best Buy which list all of the components of what is being offered in one easy spot. Even as someone that has built their own systems for years, sometimes if you just need something quick without having to do a lot of homework, it's a convenient option. Check out online stores such as HP, Dell, or Newegg for their DIY models to give you an idea of what to look for as a starting baseline. Take a look at what others are offering first to get an idea of what you might want to start with.

    If i had the money i would get this configuration: Intel Core i5 3570K: The Core i5 3570K is not the fastest processor from Intel, but power is not the main factor for games. It is also an excellent choice and freely selectable by the processor multiplier can also be easily overclocked. Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H:There are several Ivy Bridge motherboards and differences walk not far apart. It happens quite often on the personal preference. Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M2A1600C10: This memory runs at the default speed of 1600MHz and is therefore cheaper than others. Samsung 830 series 128GB and Western Digital Red WD20EFRX, 2TB: Besides the fast system disk I also need a large disk for data. The WD20EFRX Western Digital comes from the Red series, which means that this specially developed for NAS environments. He is therefore admittedly more expensive than a traditional drive 2TB, but you get a longer warranty and more security in return. Crucial m4 CT064M4SSD3 64GB: Because a mechanical drive compared to the other components can be called slow, I add a half ssd especially where caching is used. The Crucial m4 CT064M4SSD3 features an mSATA connector, which can also be found on the motherboard. Asus Radeon HD7950 DirectCU II Top V2: The Asus Radeon HD7950 DirectCU II Top V2 is equipped with 3GB GDDR5 Radeon HD 7950, equipped with a cooler designed by Asus. This is not only significantly quieter than a standard cooler, also keeps things a lot cooler, making it according to Asus two and a half times as long to go. 3x Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM: The UltraSharp U2312HM Dell has an IPS panel with LED backlight and has a screen diagonal of 23 inches ie 58.42 cm. The screen has a low input lag and response time. Partly because of the good viewing angles, the thin bezel and the display port connection it is especially suited for an Eyefinity setup of three monitors. Intel Core i5 3570K Boxed - € 199,90 Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H - € 119,95 Corsair Vengeance CML16GX3M2A1600C10 - € 65,95 Samsung 830 series 128GB - € 84,- Western Digital Red WD20EFRX, 2TB - € 109,95 Crucial m4 CT064M4SSD3 64GB - € 63,50 Asus Radeon HD7950 DirectCU II Top V2 - € 304,- (2x) Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM - € 187,49 (3x)
