The Evil Within 2 review-in-progress
Hi all, what do you think of this? Don't need a monitor, keyboard etc. Will be used for gaming, music/video editing, and all the other general stuff. Good spec & deal?

cool, thanks for that. what do you think of the rest of it?
Get the memory card reader it will come in very handy, get a dvd rom too for copying on-the-fly and it will help extend the life of your dvd-rewriter.
I would also opt for 2 smaller hdds than one big one, putting the page file on the second of the disks.
many thanks, all advice is welcomed.
actually it all sounds very good(other than the vid card i already said) the hd is fine just with one, either if u noe hwo to get raid(soemtimes very diffuclt) or get an hd with 16mb it makes a difference. u can get two 160gig seagates for a total of 100-120 bucks and run those in raid and it will give u a perforfomance boost in regular daily work and in games!(it makes a big iffernce in games) but make sure u go raid 0!
