A new desktop PC may not be a big deal for most of you guys out there but I haven't owned a desktop PC ever. My family ran through a few desktop PCs before but those were years and years ago. The last of which was back in 2002. This is the first desktop PC that I personally own.
As an early birthday gift, my parents gave me some money for me to get a potential replacement for my old HP dv-5 laptop "Bronzo". I've had Bronzo for about 4 years and have been using him for everything. School, work, procrastination and even for recording and editing my gameplay videos which is very strenuous on it's core2duo processor.
Now while most of the parts I got for the desktop are entry level parts, most of the budget went to the processor. The processor is what does most of the work in terms of video processing which is why I put my priority on it. I went with an i5, would've gone with an i7 but seriously, that little square is mad expensive. Also, another reason why I couldn't focus everything on getting the i7 is because I basically bought a complete desktop setup. Monitor, power supply, DVD drive, keyboard, mouse, etc.
Here are the specs of my new desktop. I could always just upgrade in the future but for now I think these are fine.
Processor: Intel Core i5-3330 LGA1155 Motherboard: ASUS P8 H61-M LX3 Graphics Card: Palit NVIDIA GeForce 210 1GB Memory: 4GB DD3 Hard Disk Drive: 1TB Case: PowerLogic S92-RB
This new desktop will handle the majority of my recordings and publishing so hopefully the videos will start rolling out faster.
