Hope I am posting in the right area.
I am wanting to build a media centre for my room. I have a basic knowlege of componants of a computer but don't understand a lot of the jargon so was hoping you all could help me please. I have enough know how to pull apart and install each piece of hardware though.
I also have a budget of around $500 for this project.
I want to start off with this unit (link below) as from my basic understanding, the Intel 2.2GHz processor would be a good base to start off with.
Basically want to use this shell purely for asthetic value as it is small and compact.
Now futher upgrades that I want are:
500gb hard drive
2gb RAM (as this is the maximun it can take)
Upgraded video card (if the current one is not up to standard)
Upgraded sound card.
In the future, I could possibly upgrade the processor to speed her up a bit more but that is not deemed a priority right now.
Can anyone suggest or recommend what hardware would be good to buy that stays within my budget that would work with the tower that I am wanting to purchase?
Thanks for your help in advance.
