TECH Plz Help with new PC purchase? v. Cant build one

KoolKeith

I am clueless when it comes to building a PC but I am looking to get a new one. I stumbled across http://www.page.magicmicro.com/?gclid=CJLq1bT9vJcCFQOeFQodlSAhTA --- Is this place reliable? Another option is the Dell XPS420 which I am sure is :hsugh:

I basically want 8 gig ram, a big hardrive (1TB or so) and the ability to run something like TF2, HL2 ... Nothing special

Another random noob question... do you need two video cards for two monitors? I have two 24" monitors, and my asus laptop can only hook up one, so that's another reason why I want something new.

Just go buy a dell and a decent video card and be done with it.


No, you don't need 2 video cards for dual monitors.
