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?

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
