Mostly light gaming with the usual word processing, internet surfing, instant messaging and HD movies. I do plan on plugging this into a 32 - 40" LCD TV. Gaming mostly just consists of Spore and Warcraft 3 so far.
I'm looking at spending no more than $800 tax in. That being said, I do plan on waiting out and hoping for prices to drop. I do know about the new Intel processors coming out around Jan 18, so was wondering how that's going to affect prices. My budget is +/- $50 at most, tuition sucks...
I don't have any big preferences, but I have had ASUS mobo's that have worked great for me in the past. I'd just like whatever is good, best bang/buck and good customer service.
I have already grabbed a pair of Corsair ram thus far. Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5 4GB DDR2 2X2GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 NCIX.com - Buy Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5 4GB DDR2 2X2GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 CL 5-5-5-18 240PIN Memory Kit - TWIN2X4096-6400C5 In Canada.
Yes I have done my research but I am still a novice to current technology.
No OCing is currently planned.
Timeline as mentioned above is sometime end of December to early 2009. I'm just waitng for prices to drop back down... Our dollar is taking quite the beating.
