    My current desktop, as you see below, is a Win XP 32-bit machine. I'm thinking about replacing it, but the plethora of manufacturers and models make it almost impossible to find out what's the best deal for your needs vs. the buck. My current desktop is custom-built by JNCS Computer Systems in Fairport, NY. I've thought about going back to them for a new computer, but the one I have now has suffered three failures in 4 years: The card reader failed a year ago, the HD failed 2 months ago, and the LED in the power button failed last month. I've replaced all of those, but it makes me think the computer is slowly dying, part by part. So I'm considering a new one.

    I've been impressed by the performance vs. cost of the desktops from Cyberpower, and their Reseller Rating is extremely high (4.5 stars average from 4,335 reviewers). Anybody have an opinion on them vs. others?

    If you want to feel the joy of having a new computer, you can always try to build one, research the right components and you can save more money for better deals. Since it is Christmas, it's the right time for great and discounted deals out there.
    You can easily ask forums if the components you picked fit together and will give you the best performance for your cash. You can always try Newegg, Landmark, NCIX, Tigerdirect and more for components.
    If you want a pre-built system, cyberpower computers are great. Try Dell/Alienware, provides quality and best support if you encounter any troubles.
