Advice on pc purchase
I'm getting ready to buy a new pc. I built my last two, but I don't feel like going through the hassles involved, so I'm thinking about a pre-built system. I worked with Dell's at my last job, and I found them to be a pain to upgrade. They only had one bay for mounting a hard drive, and the drive cable only had one connector!
My brother has a Gateway, and it seems to be designed with upgrades in mind. It has a toolless case, and a space for mounting an additional hard drive. I'm thinking about this one http://www.circuitcity.com/ccd/produ....do?oid=207699 , but I have a few reservations, and I thought I'd ask the experts here at GB-PVR for their opinions on this system.
I would be using the pc for analog sd video capture from a Win TV PVR USB2, and editing and converting the files to avi for playback on standalone dvd players. I'd also like to be able to play hd files that I download. I'm not into pc gaming. Thanks for any advice you can give.
