Continued from Ready to setup my new computer system?

Hehe… I missed out one of the important stuff in my new computer system ~ the hard drive. Without hard drive, how am I going to play my precious games? Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB will be my new hard drive. I don’t care much about hard drive because it is the bottom neck of the whole system. Hard drive is the slowest of all. Therefore, a new technology like solid-state drive (SSD) comes out to replace hard drive. The speed is faster and requires less power. However, it is still very expensive at the moment. Therefore, I still stuck to normal hard drive.

Nvidia and ATI AMD produce good quality 3D graphics processing unit (GPU). Which display card should I choose? I plan to have a 22″ LCD monitor. I need a display card that can power 1680 x 1050 px at playable games speed. Both Nvidia and AMD have multi GPU functionality which is SLI for Nvidia and CF for AMD. However, you can’t find much SLI motherboard in the market because only Nvidia chipset and certain Intel chipset like x38 and x48 support SLI. Therefore, CF is my only choice for the moment.

LCD monitor… Which LCD monitor should I choose? By the way, I am using Samsung 2253BW 22″ LCD monitor at office. I don’t face any problem with it on daily office works. However, does is perform well in games? Movie? I did not try that in the office. 😛 There is another new LCD monitor from Samsung. It is Samsung T220 LCD monitor. Its outlook is better and Contrast Ratio is higher – 20,000 compare to 2253BW – 8,000. Of course, the price is higher too. As for the other specifications, they are almost the same.
