Hi just recently my desktop gave up on me took the the shop the guy said something wrong with the motherboard could cost £200
my previous one ram 1 GB
So now i need a new desktop my background web developer so i use alot web software, photoshops and so on, and wrking towards programming so need to do alot copiling such java, c++, visual studios and probably alot other programming tools. i need it to be fast multi-task.
I think i need to worry about the processor speed and ram size's maybe other things dnt really know much bout it but has to be fast multi-task computer so what should i be looking for to have a computer suitable for a feature programmer???
should a build or buy my budget is £400 dnt need monitor????
one of the options i thought was the following
* Dual-core Intel® Core™ i3-540 (3.06 GHz) ----------------is this fast enough????
* Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64 bit
* Memory: 3GB ------------------ is that good size for a programming???
* DVD writer
or which of this would u recommend???
or should i build from scratch????
