I cant afford the best as i am currently just going into collage so im abit strapped for cash. I need it mostly for my artwork which requiers use of Adobe Photoshop CS2, and a few other programs that fit into that catergury as well as the internet.
I for some reason ( a mistake on my internet providers behalf ) seem to have a 400mbps connection speed, normaly used for small buisnessess. I dont think it is 400mbps but it definatly is fast as i can download a movie ( average 700mb ) in about 5-10 mins depending on peer's. Will this computer improve the time? As i am already amazed with the speed i've got...if it got any better i think i would fall in love,
I also play a few games when i have some spare time (which at the moment is quiet alot) , these are the main games i play:
- World of Warcraft + Buring Crusade Expansion
- Battle Field 2
- Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun
Not the best games but i enjoy them
Basicaly i need a fast, reliable and good looking computer, i really want this to be the one as it is in my price range ( Only just ) and looks pretty damn cool.
So can someone please help me out here, is this a good computer to get for what i need or is it over or under specified?
*Trys to calm down*
Im hoping i can order soon, but i just need to get a few things straight before i will order. So basicaly anything about the Area-51m 5500 that hasnt been mentioned i am eager to hear about. I really can't wait to sit in the internet cafe near me, connect to wireless and show off my new computer!
Many Thanks, Nathan
