I have an oldish laptop with 1gb Ram. It's time to upgrade. I'm thinking about a Desktop as a better option for the home as I can still use the laptop for portable stuff and I want to get the most out of the Desktop as a media centre. Here's what I need / would like and I need to know if this is practical or even possible:-
Large storage for films, music, photos etc... - 1TB
Large RAM for running some resource hungry VR cycling software - 8GB
A large screen to watch films on.
Decent sound/video cards and speakers for playing music
As regards point 3, I was thinking maybe an HDMI linking to an LCD TV and then a reasonable sized monitor for everyday work.
So what I really want is a powerful enough tower to kick out the media stuff I need.
Any advice and/or recommendations greatly appreciated.
