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.

Tom's Hardware guide it will give you a good breakdown of expected performances of various video/ram/processor/motherboard combinations. It is quite informative and has a lot of info on the pricing trend for processors.

I personally like the Idea of a K6-2/300 or PII-300, 3DFX Voodoo II video, Big monitor and Hard drive... :)

Have fun,
