    all depends on what your system need's are..what do you want the machine to do for you?one thing is..be careful .dont waste money on used old os product..when for just equal too or a little more you can get new ..look at major mfg.'s entry level products ..to see if those fit your needs without having to overbuy on more expensive mega bells and whistle units...shop around is the golden rule..and know what you want before you go shopping

    You may want to consider a "bare bones" computer. Shop around for one. Global Computers, Tiger Direct, Suplus Computers just for starters. Newegg may have them also. Be careful and if you know someone who knows computers, get their advice/help. Good luck.

    You're welcome. At least with such a choice, you can kinda pick and choose what you want to buy and install in it or make a part of your purchase. I know very little about computers really but I have done this 3-4 times but with help in making the correct choices. The last time, I paid someone to physically install the motherboard; etc because that was the first time a barebones came with the MB not installed. Hopefully, a CD will come with your purchase that will have the drivers/info. Makes life simpler.

    Was just looking for something else. saw this and thought of you:
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=2251696&sku=A455-2112 F If you have trouble with this link, use Tiny URL and reduce this link to one that is smaller.
    Of course, you realize that should you elect to go to barebones, you could possibly use some of your present hardware that is now in your computer.

    Here is the Tiny URL for you: http://tinyurl.com/es54q

    BTW, welcome to TSG. Stick around, I think you will like it here.
