|I want to buy a new PC computer primarily used for spreadsheets, internet surfing and e-mail. My current computer is about 5 years old and only has 512MB ram. I have some large excel spreadsheets (100MB, 65000 rows) that take over a minute to open or save which is way to slow for me. I was thinking of buying the Gateway DX4831-01E (6GB memory, Intel i3-530 processor, 1TB HD) for $550 at Best Buy. Will this computer be able to open/save my spreadsheets in a few seconds? Is there a better computer in this price range for my needs?|
I often have 10+ websites open at the same time and I run two displays with my computer. I had to purchase a GeForce FX5200 128MB DDR TV/DVI video card when I bought my last computer so I could run two displays. Do any computers in the $500 to $800 range come out of the box with the ability to run 2 displays at the same time? If so, please list the computer model and price?
I was also wondering if I buy a computer that does not come with the ability to run 2 displays simultaneously, will I be able to install the FX5200 video card in my new computer or should I just purchase a new video card? Does anyone have a recommendation for a video card. I don't need the video card for gaming, I just need it to be able to run 2 displays simultaneously. One of my displays is an older model that has a 15 pin VGA input and a 24 pin DVI input. My other display has a 15 pin VGA input and a HDMI input. So I need a video card that can connect to these 2 displays. Does anyone have a suggestion on a video card.
The tech support at Best Buy isn't very good so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
