    Is this good for a starting system. I am looking at spending $500-$700 to build a computer. The purpose of the computer is for downloading and uploading songs and videos. I plan on getting my parts from newegg.com. If you disagree with the parts for the price range, post your suggestions. Thanks!

    2.66 pentium 4- overclock to roughly 3.0 ghz
    120gb Maxtor hard drive
    Asrock motherboard w/ onboard 5.1 audio
    512mb of corsair ram
    samsung 16x dvd burner

    If you're going to be doing a lot of video, I would bump your both your hard drive and ram a little. Say, 120GBx2 and 1GB ram.

    ..but that's just me. I like a lot of extra "umph" in my video box.

    Just downloading and uploading videos? Or editing them too?

    If so, editing video takes up lots of room, and is pretty RAM intensive

    Well i think thats bullcrap

    1) need more harddrive space
    2) what good is a computer without any video!!!!! i mean unless you REALLY are good and have a good relationship with your mouse - and you can maneuver your mouse without a video card....... i'd say you prolly need to put some more thought into the computer...... lol
    3) also - what good is a computer without a case......


    shesh - kids these days

    lol i know - but why go with the internal video - that draws CPU cycle's

    Not as important these days but still important in my book when trying to get the most from a CPU / and RAM

    Also thats the same reason i prefer a sound card over built in

    But what would i know

    :mepoke:
