Want to buy a Computer

  sajjaan 17:46 07 Apr 2009

I want to buy a computer to use at home & I want to assemble it. I meant to say that I want to build my own PC, by installing parts of my choice. I want to get the best & the latest & yet cheap. I want to use it for Internet, Entertainment, like Games, Music, Movies & office work etc, an ideal PC for home users.

Is there any website, to check, what are the products available, here, in Saudi Arabia?

Can any one help me with the products, with there names, models and there specifications so, I can get the product easily. Things Like:

• Mother Board =? Best & Cheap
Intel Desktop Board DG35EC or?

• CPU =? Maximum Speed & Cheap
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E8600 or?
Hardware – Based DEP Support
64-bit (x64) processor
Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware

• RAM =? Maximum & Cheap
DDR2 800
SDRAM 1 Gbit

• HDD =? Minimum – Only to run my Operating System, lots of Software & lots of Hardware Devices. I don't trust HDDs with my data. I keep all my data in Optical Discs.

• Optical Drive =? Black in Colour

• What hardware should I get for DSL?

• Case or Chassis =? Thermally Advantaged Chassis (TAC) version 1.1. Small, Sleek, Stylish & Black in Colour. Tower or Mid Tower or Slim Line or CE.

• Monitor =? Normal Size, Best for viewing web pages, to watch movies & easy to work on it at home. Black in Colour. I am looking the following things in the monitor: Display 1024 * 768 or higher, Contrast Ratio 800:1 or better, Response Time 5ms or, DVI Input, Anti – reflection high resolution screen for use indoors. Is it better to have a monitor, which have built-in speakers or it is better to buy speakers separately?

• Printer =? Black in Colour. All-in-One, which can Print (Colour), Copy (Colour), Scan (Colour), Print Photos (Colour) and Fax? Is there any Printer that doesn't need Ink? Which can do all these things with electricity only? Because Inks or Colour Inks dries up.

• WiFi =?

• USB =? Automatically Connect with Speed Detection, Self – Powered. All-in-One, which can read all kinds of Memory Cards. Black in Colour

I would assume that most forum members wouldn't have a clue about what range of components are available in Saudi Arabia.

Have you tried Googling for suppliers there?

I would think that most retailers can ship to Saudi Arabia click here for google results

I would start by having a look at the web sites for the big pc retailers and then read up on the specifications of the different parts that you need.

sajjaan has 'yellow envelope' emailed me to say that my link (a google search page) was blocked by the restrictions in Saudi Arabia.

sajjaan please note that (forum rules) you are supposed to only use the yellow envelope if invited to.
That means that if I had posted on here 'please use yellow envelope to email me' it would be okay.

It is better to post on the thread so that everybody can read it and help.

Sorry about that sajjaan and hope I have not caused offence to you by pointing it out.

Have you tried Googling for suppliers yourself as Stuartli has suggested and do any of bobbybowls links work for you?
