I'm looking for a good Multimedia PC - Budget can go max to 70K (Hardware + Software).. ** Would prefer the case to as sleek as possible (Would like to know how difficult is it considering the below requirements). ** Would like to make it as dual-boot with Windows 7 & Linux (is Ubuntu good or something else?)... Recommendations on HDD size & partitions keeping this in mind plz... ** Note that I have External HDD WD320GB & WD250GB... So would 500GB HDD enough or should I go for 1TB itself considering that its not that pricey... Should HDD be in RAID config? (My earlier laptop had a hard-drive crash 2 yrs back & I lost all old data) OR should it be 2 HDD of 500 GB each? ** I also have LiteOn LH-16A1P487C (bought in 2006) apart from a Wireless Logitech Keyboard & Mouse. ** Is it ok to use this DVD Writer itself or is a new BDDrive recommended (either as additional drive or as the only drive)? ** Given the powercuts in Mumbai, I already have APC HI800SQ (http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=HI800SQ) at home -- is it safe to assume I don't need any additional UPS? ** Would ~22 inch LCD Monitor good enough? -- AOC2230FM or AOC2236VW (as per Digits test) or some other model -- which is recommended? HD compatibility is preferred... ** Would like an option for TV Tuner & Remote ** Inbuild normal speakers are ok since I'll use my Philips HTS 3105-98 for multimedia ** If possible would prefer 1 or 2 USB ports, Headphone jack & microphone jack in the front of the case ** Definitely at the back, would require 4 USB ports, 1 VGA Connector, Ethernet port, Line In & Line Out and S-Video port... Would like suggestions on whether HDMI or other multimedia related ports need to be planned... ** Would require the Modem as well as Wireless solution ** Is it possible to have a 19-in-1 Hi Speed Media Card as well (something like what's in Dell Inspiron 545) ? ** On the software front, the budget will need to consider Windows 7, MS Office 2007 Home Edition. ** Does Lotus Notes client available for single user purchase? If so that will be required too. If that is not available, I would require MS Outlook too (ie, MS Office 2007 will be Standard and not Home Edition) along with IBM Lotus Domino Access for MS Outlook -- Hope the domino access is available for separate purchase ! ** On the security front, Would Kaspersky + Spybot + Windows Defender + Windows Firewall suffice? Or is some commercial product like Norton / Symantec / McAfee suggested? Incase if any of the above pushes the bugdet more, would like to know on that too.. Thanks in advance !
