OPTIMIZE a VIDEO COMPUTER
Posted on 1998-07-24
I am buying my nephew (18) a new computer. He is into video. We were looking at G3 Apples, but have found there is a line by Gateway which is optimized for video. We are trying to decide what combination of things should we ordering more speed (ie 266 vs 300 Mhz) or should I spend more on the lower 266Mhz and just buy more RAM (up from say 32 Megs to 96? Do I need to get him an Apocalypse accelerator, whatever that may be? He'd love it for me to buy the biggest 36" monitor(which is also a tv) along with the Harmon Kardon sound system, but I don't think I can afford to buy him a new tv and new sound system in addition to the computer. Any comments VERY gratefully received.
