I’ve been thinking for ages whether I’d like to build myself a nice swanky new PC and I’m in a very interesting quandary about it. Right now, I’m merrily using my little Revo R3600 or iPhone to do my blogging and other general IT stuff at home.
Although I had plans to use the Revo as a little quiet media centre, that all went for a walk when I realised we were using the TV pretty much all the time meaning the computer attached to it wasn’t being used. Needless to say, its now attached to the back of my monitor taking up zero space and making hardly a sound. Blogging was never going to overheat the little guy.
OK, so here’s the question and try to remember who’s asking it.
Would building a PC actually achieve anything?
Sure, I’d have the fun of putting one together, getting all the software up and running (maybe even using it to teach myself some other OS’s other than Windows ones) and generally enjoying the whole “roll your own” experience I’ve had on numerous occasions before.
But in the longer run, would it be worth it? Couldn’t I justify the cash spent and the hours gobbled up by such a hobby/project? I’m not sure and that’s where its all getting complicated. If nothing else, her majesty would be thrilled to see yet more kit in our little nest!!
I think I’ve just talked myself out of it…… Maybe if I just pop by ebuyer again and have a look at that case I liked…… 😀
