  1. Also, this has been stated before, if you are building a rig purely for gaming, then you need to be focused on the video card and not so much the processor.

    32C......that seems kinda low for air cooling.

    New Comp

    $1000 is overkill then. A cheap P4 with HT, or something like a 2800+ XP would be plenty. Just make sure you have a decent board and some quality RAM, and you will be set. Then spend what's leftover on the biggest LCD monitor you can get....she will notice that WAY more than anything else.

    Asus Vs. Giga-byte Vs. Msi

    My MSI Neo2 Platinum has been great...probably the best best board you can buy for a s939 cpu. However, I have no experience PCI-e, but I would think the MSI board is soild.

    Laptop Ideas

    My Dell lappy cost me a whole $700 and it gets the job done.
  11. My AMD64 3000+ hits 50 C on the stock cooler at load....so...you might be reading slightly low.

    New Computer

    My grandmother uses a cheapo E-Machines computer for getting on the internet and checking her email. It was under $400, and does fine.

    Desktop Or Notebook?

    Depends if you are planning to go between home and college often. Personally, I have a nice desktop for home use and I bring a bottom of the line notebook to school for Matlab and other stuff.

    Screwing Around With Telemarketers

    I just answer with the speaker phone and let them listen to music, or me playing CS for a while.
