Thread: Help Needed

  1. #1
    Hey Guys,

    I Have now bought my new $6,000 Pearl Drumkit, and am now looking to buy a new computer in the next few months. I need some help choosing a good kind. Basically, I am looking for something that can handle most multiplayer games, easily upgradeable (more ram, hd's etc), and all around decent. I do plan to have it run 24/7. I live in canada, and what would anyone recommend a manufacturer's model wideley availible please?

    software/games I would like to handle:

    Bf 1942
    Cakewalk audio
    Linux parition/dual boot

    Basically stuff like that. What do you recommend? (keep price in the ballpark please, I'm using canadian $$$ at my local futureshop or best buy)

    Thanks guys

    you'll find most people on the board (including me) will recommend you build it yourself. produce various monthly buyer's guides, which are helpful

    Welcome fellow Canadian.

    Yup. Build it yourself. It's the best way to go.

    What's your budget?

    Well, a purse like that will purchase a pretty nice PC.

    Why the limit to Futureshop or BestBuy?
