The Tech-Guru's Computer:

The final PC lifestyle that I see in computer users is the Tech-Guru. Tech-Guru's are people that can't get enough of technology, they want the best products available, regardless of price. Some use their PC for graphic design, some use for software development; others use it for pure joy of knowing that they have the best PC in the city. This is a list of the "top of the line" products for a PC owner, at the lowest available price on the web.

TOTAL COST

$1930.99

Please don't be too frightened of the total cost of this system. Remember, this is "top of the line." Without a doubt, this would be the fastest computer in your city, no questions asked. You can expect the P4 prices to drop in the later months, but for now, $688 is not bad for the i850 and processor. Some of you may want to substitute the Pentium 4 processor for a 1.3Ghz AMD T-Bird. You'll need a new motherboard for the AMD chip naturally. When it comes to the video card, the GeForce2 Ultra is an incredible graphics card, pumping out 64MB; this baby will keep you going!

Even if you only pick just one piece from this list, you will have the top-notch product for that specific hardware piece. Being or becoming a tech-guru is an awfully expensive lifestyle. Although being a tech-guru has its fun and excitement, you better have a large bankroll, or else your guru days will be soon over.

Knowing your PC lifestyle will help you determine your hardware. Family, Gamer, Tech-guru all use different systems for their needs. Family PC's have decent systems, but more importantly, decent costs. Gamers also have a low budget, but need a good system in order to play the latest computer games. Tech-Guru's don't care about cost, they just want the best of the best for their personal use.

Whatever the lifestyle you are, be sure to choose your hardware wisely. Some components are not necessary, and could be wasting your valuable cash; others are essential to your style, and need to be purchased for your full enjoyment.
