I am about to assemble a new PC. I would like to select components that have better than average resistance to external RF and minimal output of same.
I went thru this same exercise about 2 years ago.
My approach was to select the case and power-supply first as it's the computers first line of "defense" in EMI/RFI suppression.
I chose an Antec steel mid-tower case and power-supply. The Antec cases are well designed and the power-supplies seem quiet.
I've had two different mobo's in this Antec case both running an AMD Athlon Thunderbird cpu at 1.2ghz - the first was a ASUS mobo with which I was disappointed when one of it's EIDE channels died and corrupted a harddisk after a few months. I replaced the ASUS with a FIC mobo and have been very pleased.
As a point of reference - this 1.2ghz system has far and away much less EMI than my old generic case and p.s. that ran a Cyrix P166+ cpu. I have no noticeable EMI or digital noise in my receivers that I can blame on the computer. And have never had the system crash due to RF getting into the system at power levels up to 1.5kw. The computer is in the radio shack BTW.
