I am going to attempt to build a computer. I will use it for homework, games, online games, and internet surfing, copying cds, music, some fireworks image editing. Also I would like to try running raid to get better performance on games and just applications. I want one that stripes, but also mirrors for a fail safe.
I don't have the most money, but have some and will built myself.
