So my mum has put me up to the task of researching computers and stuff since I know a bit about specifications, however I am not that experienced and some of you guys are.

 

We are looking for a desktop, great for gaming but also saving photos and stuff onto so we might need a lot of hard-drive storage. If you know any Graphics cards or computers that are good then I would appreciate the help. Any other useful information would also be great.

 

Thanks :)

Do you have an estimated price range?

The specifications of your hardware are basically going to be reflected by how much you pay for it. Unless you do something silly like buying a computer from a department store or something. Don't do that.

My one suggestion - focus on whatever you need for your gaming, and get your mum an external hard drive.

Hard drive space is cheap, for like $80 you can get a 1tb external drive..that's like 200,000 pictures, depending on the size

Price range is about maximum £500. It might get a decent computer.

I was thinking of that, not a bad idea. That's probably the best solution that would fit both our needs.

no, bad idea, bad.

 

just install another HDD if you want more storage or it ever becomes an issue. :\
