Robert Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 Alright, my mother needs a new computer. We don't have newegg and cheap parts shops here, so if you could just answer her questions, that should be enough. Need a bit of information if you can help. I am thinking of buying a new computer, but am a bit out of touch with everything nowadays.1. Do I need firewire?2. A DVD burner with Blueray. Does this prevent playing of other DVDs?3. Is 7200 rpm SATA II OK?4. CPU and motherboard: Intel-E4500 Core 2 Duo. Will this cope with future developments, programs?5. Sound: On board, or not? 6. Windows XP or Vista Premium?7. Ram: More than 2 GB? Is DDR2-800 PC6400 OK?8. Modem, if Broadband: Single port ADSL?9. DVD drives: Presently have 1 DVD player + 1 DVD burner. 1 drive seems norm now. Should I have both? Oh, she might be reading this, so don't be rude. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
