hello /g/
my dad is going to be buying a $1200 desktop computer (monitor included) and i will help him put it together. its been a year or so since i built mine so what tips would you give for a multimedia machine for that price? he wants to burn movies (including blu rays) and game on there. i was thinking a 60gb ssd for boot and a 2tb 5400 rpm for storing movies. maybe an amd to save costs. thoughts?

Use a smaller spare drive for now, and wait a few months for prices to go down on HDD's

He's spending waaaaay to much money.

>> No.22690312

It kind of makes me cringe that you're not getting the 2500k.

>> No.22690334

That includes monitor. Otherwise, it's a $1000 PC. It would be even cheaper if it didn't have the blu-ray burner.

>> No.22690335

what would you suggest then?
and ive gotten price down to 1230 with 60 in rebates.
he wont be overclocking
fast ssd + slower 2tb for storing movies is a bad idea? multiple 1tb 7200 rpms are too much

>> No.22690366

i3 2100 is enough for him, that's like $100 saved right there.

>> No.22690375


If he's not a tech-head, prioritize the nicer monitor, speakers, case, keyboard, mouse over the faster processor/gpu. Which it seems like you're already considering.

Other than that, it looks like you've got a pretty good hang on it. Personally I might still wait a bit for HDD prices to drop back into the floor, if not-- check slickdeals they have some nice finds.

>> No.22690382

thats not a bad idea. but i feel an i3 in a $1000 pc is a bit silly. especially matching it with a 6950

>> No.22690390

>6950 at pre-7xxx series price.

it won't bottleneck, at least not during gaming/movies/burning.

still it just feels wrong putting 1/10 the money into a processor. i guess it could work though.

>> No.22690479

unless he's going to be using it for PS2 emulation or something, he's never going to have real issues with a slow (aka sub-enthusiast tier) processor.

he honestly probably will though. and maybe encoding video which i think might be a better task for an i5. plus he already asked for an i7 which i convinced him an i5 was good enough. not sure about the i3. heh. hopefully hdd prices come down in a short time

besides the fact that my 4chan addon gives posters individual IDS and the fact that your tripcode serves no purpose if people cant differentiate you from others. i do not see the logic here.

It's the best kind of pizza, bitch. It's a man's pizza. When you feel like you can beat eating records and shit, you eat a Chicago style pizza.

When you ever think what would it be like to be gay and down a dong, you eat a NY style pizza.

I don't know what that feeling feels like, since I don't eat NY style pizza.

Protip: Only gays and women eat NY style pizza.

Deepdish is a fucking Americanized abomination, it's just a puddle of fucking grease and sweaty cheese. You should be shot for eating one.

Eating Chicago-style "pizza" looks like the gay lifestyle, shoving a huge fucking pile of gooey mess in your mouth.

Eating a NY-style is like eating a woman's snatch.

Is he burning movies or encoding them? You need to make that clear. If he's encoding then you want a 2600k. If he's just ripping them off bluray you better hope he even knows how to do that, since its a much bigger pain in the ass than a DVD

>> No.22690772

enjoy your ketchup on a cracker fag.
i guess if you can ignore effeminate qualities of NY pizza and use ad hominems to make your pizza appear hetero you deserve a medal. denial is the said to be the first step to recovery...

Go take your anorexic bulimic whores that you bother to call "women" and get the fuck out of here. A real women has meat on her with curves. That's what it's like to eat Chicago.

NY style is like trying to be with a 12 year old boy. It's small, fragile, barely qualifies for what you need, and only gays in denial would want one.

Chicago - For men
NY - For gays, women, and gays in denial

A 500 - 1TB 5400 RPM is what you want right now. Pick up another 2TB 5400rpm when prices drop. The flooding in Thailand is still recent and has caused an over 300% price increase for most HDD's

>> No.22690847

not much more to get the 2tb

>> No.22690860

Then get the fucking 2TB. But when prices drop back down to 2TB being 50$ I'll be laughing.

I don't remember the prices being that low ... But I do remember seeing 1TB hard drives in the $50-$60 range.

1TB 7200rpm was 50$ 2TB 5400RPM was 50$

Look at these two right here in my picture.

The one on the left represents the clearly superior Chicago style pizza. Fully loaded with extra goodness.

The one on the right represents the disgustingly terrible NY style pizza. Small, with barely anything holding it together.

Real men take the one on the left every time.

SSDs weren't affected by the Taiwan flooding.
