I have recently been accepted to software engineering at the university of waterloo, and as such my parents have agreed to go 50/50 on a nice computer to bring to waterloo. At first I was looking at a laptop, but then some IT friends of mine suggested that I could get a better desktop and then connect to it through remote desktop. As such I put together a list of parts that I think should work well, but as this is my first time putting a computer together from scratch I have been trying to get as many opinions as possible. Thus this post. Here are the specs for the computer that I put together:
- Hard Drive(x4)
- Internet Router(x1)
- Operating System (x1)
- Some interface computer from a local tech shop (just a cheap netbook with windows on it
- I will borrow a monitor from my father just to set up remote desktop, then I don't think I should need it again?
Anyways I want to be absolutely certain that this will work, so any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.
