hello. nice forum here. was wondering if i could get some advice. ive got a gateway system now but looking to buy a whole new system. i cant build my own so i went to my local computer guy and he suggested these specs amd 64 bit processor gforce 5900g ultra 250 gb hard drive with 8mb cache 1 gig of ddr ram 18" flat screen sound blaster audigy 2 with fire wire cd rom dvd rom cdrw dvdrw not sure what this will cost me yet i do gaming online and my wife wants to do home movies and pictures. this will be our third system and i am just tired of having to get new systems every two years. the first two times we were ignorant(still are). we just dont really know what is all out there. i want a system that i can keep for a good while with an occasional upgrade every now and then. the system i have now doesnt have dvd burner,firewire, and my vid card is only 64 mb. hard drive is only 40 gig, 1.7 intel p4 cpu. it has gotten real slow. i figured i would go for the most recent stuff this time. any input i would greatly appreciate. thanks a lot.
