Does anyone know where to find a good price on a p4 computer without all of the extra crap loaded on it.I like the idea of having a dedicated recording computer.
I checked out tiger direct but they seem to be pushing gaming and vidieo stuff these days,any help would be apreciated.
I dont know if you have any experience into assembling a computer together but you probably know someone in your friends who does.
That being said, i built my computer from brand new OEM retail parts i bought at a computer parts store, the case, mobo, hard disks, RAM all in separate boxes, then you do the IKEA thing...
Advantage of this?
You choose the parts yourself instead of the crap Dell or CompaQ or any other brand name company that chooses everything in your place.
plus... you get to install XP pro instead of crappy bugged Vista.
I live in Canada, but im sure those computer parts store must also exist in the US.
