  1. hi there

    i want to build a PC , but i´m have difficulty in choosing the parts.. :)

    the pc will be used for everything !!! GAMES , 3ds max, photoshop, etc..

    funds... 1200 usd (no monitor and speakers)

    can anyone make a suggestion on configuration.... MB , CPU , GPU , RAM etc.

    thanks

    Your being a little vague.. What kind of system do you want? AMD, Intel?
    What kind of games do you play?

    well i was vague , because i dont know ... "they" say AMD i better for games and INTEL is better for the rest.....

    so far i´ve had no complaints from my AMD PC...

    but since this PC will have a different primary user (my brother) ... and he uses 3ds max , photoshop etc. at work ... he wants a pc which will be reliable to work at home as well (to him hardware stuff is from a different planet- he knows his software and that is it...)
    he just got Call of duty 2 and on my pc the grafics are low... :)
