Ok, so I'm wanting to build a new tower. I must admit, for a geek, I've never built one from the ground up. I need some help. I'm not going to be doing high-end gaming. I might run some AOE2 or Monopoly Casino, but that's about it. I would like it to be able to handle up to 4 monitors though. When I do development work at home, the more monitors the better. I also don't want it to go obsolete too quickly, so I'm thinking at least Quad-core. Here's a general idea: Processor: Quad-core RAM: As much as possible/Max out the Mobo. Hard-drive: at least 2 TB with RAID (another thing I could use help on. Which is the best?) Tower: Whatever works. Mobo: Whatever fits in the box and will handle the proc. Video: Whatever it takes to run up to 4 monitors. Power Supply: Whatever it takes and is fairly quiet. Card Reader: I'm tired of using my SD jump drive. Firewire: Would love it to be on the front, but just need one port, at least. USB: Plenty. Optical Drives: DVD burner for sure. Insanely good deal on a BR burner is a bonus. If DVDR, then DVD-ROM 2nd. If BRR, then BR drive 2nd. Other things to know: Speakers don't matter. I'll probably just use the keyboard and mouse I have now. This will be Windows, but I'm thinking about doing a dual or triple boot (Maybe WinServer 2003/2008 and/or some Linux distro just to see what it's like because I'm a Linux virgin). Get creative. This will probably be a project I attack over 10-12 months so I don't have to finance anything, but at least get me looking in the right direction. I'm not wanting to spend $10k on it, but I don't want to go insanely cheap, either.
