I'm going to get a new computer, dose anyone have a suggestion on what brand to get, besides Dell? And should I get 512 MB of memory or 1GB?
Have them put the ram that they give you in 1 socket so you can buy ram cheaper to fill the other 1 or 2 sockets. You want a gig at the minimum, probably 1.5 to 2 for the next version of the flight sim.
Check out Hardware Forum, there are some good companies building gaming machines now at nice prices.
Check online to see what you want(some sites let you build from scratch ) and to see what the price is likely to be about
Then check your locak phone book for any PC specialists and get a quote from a couple,check their after sales service while your at it
Buying local can save you money, because you get exactly what you want and espesally when things go wrong
Or how about building one yourself(this used to be the cheapest way,but nowadays its pretty hard to beat some companies prices)
Self build can be nerve racking but when it all goes to plan its very rewarding
Falconjgc's dad built a computer once. He is pretty knowledgeble. That's what my dad wants to do when we get a new computer.We have too many problems with our dell.
I found one!
Does it look good?
