Norton Home Office PC Build: No More Videos… Pics Instead!

[ The following concerns a paid campaign currently running on the site. ]

By David Ponce

So here I was, thinking my low-qual video was at least moderately entertaining, despite being, well… horribly low quality (not so hot for an overhyped N96 video, to tell you the truth). But the more I look at it, the more I think it cruel and unusual punishment to subject you to any more of me this way. So instead, I’ll just include a little gallery of blurry iPhone pics after the jump. If you want to see the full article, with descriptions and stuff, hit the link at the end.

Does anyone here think I have an obsession with low quality?

    You're selling it all wrong man. You're not supposed to say “low-quality”, just call it “artistic” and people will come from miles to see your brilliant view of today's technological society.

    But to answer your question, yes, you're obsessed with it ;)

    Lol… Is that so? I think you're totally right. People should come to OhGizmo for our fancy Artistes…

    Not bad, although the CPU is fairly dated, and you could've gotten something a bit beefier for your $1000 budget….perhaps an E8400…

    Also, whenever I see a stock heatsink used I simply cringe. I know there's nothing wrong with using one for an Office PC where you're not planning to overclock…but they're just so bad…>.>

    Anyway, it's looking good :) Those HDDs with the 32MB cache should be pumping out around 80mbps so that's great as well- nice, speedy start ups…lets hope the aged 4600 won't drag your system down.

    Actually, its speedy as hell. I bought an oversized Ultra cooler, but in the end I didn't put it in. Not sure why. Like you said, it seemed like overkill for something that's supposed to be an office machine.

    But no, it's fast. Those 4GB of RAM sure help. :)
