I'm evaluating hardware to set up a PC multimedia authoring system for
educational/corporate titles. I have a 486DX2-66, 4MB RAM, 250MB hard drive,
size SVGA monitor, and have looked to upgrade to 16 MB with a quad speed CDROM
with sound card, speakers, and microphone.

Does anybody have suggestions for me on what brands are reliable, and what would
be a
good place to start in building an upgradable machine? Also, I've considered
buying a new Pentium with everything bundled, including a 1GB hard drive and
monitor but don't know what I'm going to need long term.

If you have experience in authoring multimedia titles, please pass along your
