That's on PC?

Interesting... Have they added any good songs yet?

That I'm assuming will also be on PC.

No idea. I pre-ordered it. It was supposed to be released on the 16th for PC but I don't think it has been yet. Hopefully it's released soon.

Hey guys, kind of a random question:

So basically I'm trying to figure out a gift for my gf for Christmas. I'm buying her shoes and a handbag, but she also really really needs a computer. She's been using her work one for everything as of late, but I don't think she should keep checking facebook and whatnot on a work computer.

Anyway, I'm stuck with this dilemma: She has mentioned to me before that she wants a desktop computer, however she doesn't play any pc games, do any photoshop, or anything like that. She would be basically using it for very basic things. I'm not sure whether or not to buy her a relatively cheap laptop, or go all out and buy/build her a desktop computer.

I need suggestions. HALP?

Thanks :)

I don't have a girlfriend, but she is smart to want a desktop. For a good desktop that is needed for basic needs, it shouldn't cost you too much if you build it yourself.

What I would do is order in:

- Standard desktop case
- 600+WATT power supply
- Motherboard
- Quadcore processor (probably AMD because their CPUs are more affordable)
- 8GB RAM
- Standard low-end video card
- 1TB hard disk space
- Blu-Ray disk drive

That rig is enough to last a while and achieve everything she would want it to, according to the information you have provided.

Does she already have a mouse, keyboard, speakers and monitor?

4gb is just enough for a standard computer.

Man those specs are GOOD. My specs are at least half as good as those (except in the case of the video card and hard disk space) and I make music with one of the most CPU-intensive VSTs in the market.

Frankly if she's just going to browse Facebook and stuff, 2 GB and a dual-core will most definitely be enough. Maybe 4 GB but that's pushing it. And unless she has or plans on having massive music libraries or something, 200 - 500 GB of hard disk space will be more than enough.

I agree that desktop > laptop though. If she doesn't need the portability of a laptop, then a desktop is 99% of the time a better choice in my opinion.

I built a computer for my mum over a year ago with the intention of it lasting her for a while. It is a quad-core with 4GB of RAM. Now that you mention it, 4GB does the job. 8GB is probably a tad of overkill. However, I would not lower my recommendation to 2GB in today's world of technology.

I would also not recommend a dual-core in today's day of technology. I mean, it may do the job now, but a quad core will last longer, and they're not as expensive as they used to be. For a new rig, dual-core is a bit out of it.

And unless she has or plans on having massive music libraries or something, 200 - 500 GB of hard disk space will be more than enough.

People like to download movies and tv series. These can chew up lots of space. Especially when done legally, if you download the HD files. One movie is like 6 gig.

See that's the other thing as well. She says she wants a desktop, but she's not doing anything spectacular to warrant a desktop. She destroyed her last laptop, ie not taking care of it and now the thing is to shit, not to mention 6 years old.

I've build a computer before, but for myself, and I knew what I wanted in it because I knew what I was going to be using it for. I'm thinking that 1 TB of hdd is wayyyy to much for her, and so is the blueray player. I don't think she would need that. If she needs it in the future, I could always buy it/install it.

To answer the other questions, she does not have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, anything. I would need to buy her everything. I've been looking around for DIY combos around 400-500 bucks, and there seem to be decent ones out there.

I'm open to any suggestions if you guys have them

^ Threw this together to match what you're looking for.

The CPU is actually a brand new APU that just recently came out. It's a quad core and has built-in graphics capabilities that are waay above any other APU on the market. It should be able to handle any videos or movies very easily, and is still cheaper than the cheapest of Intel's latest generation chips.

The motherboard is a solid pick for the price. It's one of the most inexpensive boards that support the APU I chose and still has enough on it to suit any casual needs.

I decided on 8GB memory because, with the cheap price of RAM nowadays, it's silly to skimp out on it. 8GB is starting to become the norm, and at $26 that kit is pretty much the best deal available right now. It's the cheapest in terms of price per GB and it's from a very reputable memory manufacturer.

For storage you've got a 500GB HDD as well as a 60GB SSD. Together that costs about the same as a pretty good 1TB HDD. If you want to shave off $30 then forgo the SSD, but I highly recommend getting it and putting your OS on it as it cuts boot times and many other things DRASTICALLY. I'm talking 15-20 seconds to have you looking at the desktop with everything fully loaded after pressing the power button.

The case is a good one and is an excellent value for the money. It fits a micro ATX form factor motherboard, which is what the motherboard I used happens to be. It's also quite compact and won't take up very much space at all, if that's a concern.

The PSU is a 530 watt, even though you probably won't need anything above 450. I prefer to play it safe and go a bit above the spec just in case, though. Plus, it's modular, which will be very convenient when you're actually putting the machine together, especially considering the limited amount of space you'll have in the case. You could get away with using a cheaper, non-modular PSU, but in my opinion it's worth paying a few extra dollars for.

Optical drive plays Blu-Ray/DVD/CD. Pretty much self-explanatory.

That looks pretty good, but I wouldn't recommend a SSD for a standard computer user. Especially with only 60GB of space. A windows 7 installation can easily hit around 40 GB, and that's already 2/3 of the capacity, which is where you'd want to stop for a SSD anyways.

I would recommend a UPS (uninterpretable power source) guy looking for computer parts. It's a power strip but its surge protected AND has a battery built in, in case there is a power outage your computer will have an extra 45 minutes of power. That way you dont lose your work!

You get peace of mind for $5.

And I make better music while I'm severely sleep deprived... which is apparently akin to being drunk.

Not that I'd know... I don't drink... but I've been told I get kind of whacky when I'm sleep deprived.

I've tried both techniques. I make better music when I'm totally sober and wide awake and energetic. Lately I've been doing exercises. I started about 2-3 months ago, and I just keep adding tiny bits in. Now I do about 2 hours, maybe less, of exercise per day. I feel so much better and alive. And because I burn that physical energy, it settles me down more when working on music, so I can go through things more methodically and patiently.

I mean, I've got more physical energy now that I'm doing exercises, but I feel more settled when I'm not exercising. How does that work? lol

Why has Breed disappeared randomly?

I know you all ponder this as you lie awake in bed everynight so I'm gonna answer it for you. Got a new job selling audio gear at guitar center 2 months ago and its been CRAZY. Overtime everyday kinda thing. Now that we finally arent understaffed, what do you suppose was the result of me working my ass off to save the audio department at my location? PROMOTION BABY. 2 months and I'm already the audio department manager. boo ya!

It's not. It's closer to being high than drunk, but in a less pleasurable/fun and more tiresome way.

And apparently if you get too sleep deprived, you start to hallucinate. Not good hallucinate either, scary Benadryl overdose hallucinate...

Believe it or not, all the audio people in my department have bachelors in music or recording. I'm the only one who doesnt haha! But still yeah...they really don't know much. I blame public education
