Finding new PC build

posted 20 Sept 2011, 02:38 by John Stavrakakis
Spent some of the day looking at what the current tech offers for PC builds. The remaining issue is the case. Acoustics are crucial since this PC will be running 24x7 in the same room as me. The maximum power draw of each component is pretty big too CPU 120W, Chipset 61W GPU 160W. Well, I hope that the intelligent power management from CPU and GPU operated effectively, because as a server, there should only be processing when there are clients connected.

Where does the day go, it is too absorbing to research computer components for best performance per dollar. I might skip the SSD, the super fast gfx card, and any fancy peripherals. A monitor to buy is lurking in my mind. Core system first!
