1 It's time for a new desktop, I'd rather the the money to Amazon or Ebuyer
2 than the Inland Revenue. I'm currently running a Core2Duo system, but use
3 AMD before that, so I have no real allegiances.
5 I was thinking of something like an AMD 1100T 6 core CPU, the new
6 Bulldozers are expensive and initial reports are not that promising, but
7 an Intel that gives the same bang per buck would do. I'm thinking
8 Gigabyte for motherboard, based on comments made here in similar threads
9 (like the one Dale started a while ago). I need lots of SATA ports
10 (fortunately, I bought a pair of 2TB drives a fortnight ago, just before
11 the prices went ballistic).
13 I'm not a gamer, but I want a system with plenty of grunt. Video
14 performance is not critical, on board would suffice, except I need
15 something with dual output to drive two monitors. Do any of the onboard
16 jobbies do this or is a separate Nvidia still the best option?
18 Thoughts would be welcome, and please feel free to start your own ATI vs
19 Nvidia and AMD vs Intel flamewars. OK, I'd rather you didn't, but I'm not
20 about to waste electrons asking for the impossible :)
