Yeah not new here, but it has been awhile
Well its been about three years and I think it's time to get a new desktop, and naturally since I've been out of the scene for so long, I don't know what exactly would be a smart buy. I'm looking just for some suggestions for (sorry that it's one of these threads) cpu, ram, mobo, psu, gpu, etc. I want something that's powerful of course, ocing is not going to be the main thing here this time, I really want a quiet
pc, but if I could run Crysis (I don't know what games they use to benchmark anymore) that'd be a nice plus as well.
As for a monitor I was looking at the Dell s2409, that seems to be a favorite here, or a Samsung toc 22" (not full HD, 1680x1050 I think); I'm looking for an HDMI input and a tv tuner but I haven't found anything besides Samsung that fulfills that requirement.
I know I don't contribute much to the forums, but you guys really are the best forum out there, plus I have little nostalgia with this website (it's grown so much).
edit: wow, I'm just looking at cpu's right now, and it's completely different than how I remember (dual core just came out, intel regained the crown), there seem to be like too many processors to choose from.
