new pc advice
Posted on 2006-11-15
i have to buy a new computer for older retired man,
all he uses is MS Office - Word and internet browser ( on XP, antivirus, firewall would also be installed ).
Computer should run fast for him, although he is not interested in spending way extra on tiny low percent differences.
Sempron or Athlon 64 ?
How much difference would there be between DDR2 PC5300 vs DDR1 PC3200 ?
Athlon 64 3500 S939 or Athlon 64 3000 AM2 - I believe only difference between S939 and AM2 is DDR2 support, but how much difference is there between Athlon 64 3500+ vs 3000+ ?
I planned to choose MB with integrated graphic card nForce6100 - but it seems bit does not support DVI,
is there visible difference between DVI vs analog graphic card output ?
