The third submission is your final submission.
You have been tasked with building a PC from scratch for a user named Joe. Joe will be using this PC for high end gaming along with everyday tasks such as e-mail and web browsing. Cost is not a constraint, but Joe would like the best bargain he can get. Write a report detailing what you recommend for each component of the system and why. Note that the details of the scenario are left deliberately vague. Have some fun with this! Design a top end system for the best price you can get. Be creative!
In the below list, the first part of each item is the PC component, and it is followed by its specifications that need to be included in your report. For instance, first in the list is the PC component “Operating System.” It is followed by its specifications of which version of Windows you are choosing and either 64 or 32 bit.
Make sure and address the following components and their specifications:
- Operating System
- System Board
- Video Card- performance, compatibility with system board, output ports
- Power Supply
- Data Storage
- Input/Output Ports and Cables
Requirements and details:
-At least four pages long (it can be longer) double spaced using Arial 12 point font and 1 inch margins. Note that the title of the document and any header will NOT be counted as part of the length.
-Provide links to all PC components you are recommending (this doesn’t count towards the length).
