I've looked for similar threads in Forums and didn’t find anything. But, if this question has already been asked and answered, I apologize and would appreciate being pointed towards it. Right before I was preparing to load AnyDVD and CloneDVD to my trusty HP pc (1.8Ghz, 250Gb storage), I got an “ERROR LOADING OS” message and now it won’t do anything. Friends tell me I should get a boat because I have a fine anchor for it. So, I loaded the programs to an older Dell pc (900 Mhz, 120Gb storage) to give it a try. It works, but I am a bit disappointed in the overall speed of the process. So, my question is this: What is it that makes a good relatively-fast pc for use with the SlySoft products? ProcessorSpeed, Storage, RAM, Drives, other? I’m not asking the age-old brand-by-brand comparisons or the ‘Intel better than AMD?’ argument, but simply where would I best put my money if I had to buy a new computer? I can spend $500-600 and get something that seems adequate but I can also spend two/three (or more) times that and get something obviously better/faster, but is it worth it? Will I see a 2x/3x/more improvement? I’ve read about over-clocking, water-cooling, etc, but that isn’t me. I’m looking for features right out of the box, easy to use, not blazingly-fast, and relatively inexpensive. My applications tend towards the afore-mentioned SlySoft stuff, light-duty video editing, and regular MS-Office type applications. Please be gentle with me here, as I am just barely computer-literate enough to get myself into trouble. Thanks!
