    I want to buy a desktop computer too.

    I'm pretty sure I want a Core i5 for the CPU [​IMG]
    i'm impressed by this new gen of Intel CPUs. And I can't afford an i7 [​IMG]

    Heh, I ended up building my comp from scratch. I had to go all the way to Orange County to get the pieces. But all in all I spent under 700 and the result is a better computer I would've ever got for the price.

    ~$100 going into the OS anyway for pre-built systems. Many amatuer system builders opt for a less-than-lawful OS to save that money and put it into better parts. After all, hardware is (arguably) more important than software.

    Depends on what you need it for.

    Gaming, I recommend building your own.
