im looking for one. as stated, it will be used for almost purely gaming, with a bit of internet surfing, and some burning of dvds. i would prefer it if it came with a monitor (19" widescreen)
another thing: i dont have an OS on disk, my laptop never came with one, im not sure whether to get vista now or not. i dont really want to spend 60 quid on xp now, when it will be outdated in a few months time, so the question is, should i get vista now? i know that there have been problems using it for gaming. i do have linux on disc, but i have tried it and would really not like using it again (im crap).
well, i can get about 150-200 for each week longer i wait before i buy the computer, thanks to a job i just picked up. i have been savig for this for about 4 months as it is now though. damn friday night piss-ups tend to hold me back a bit though. i was thinking something with an 8800gts 320mb, amd athlon x2, and 1 gb of ram?
i dont really want to spend that much on a computer though, i have other things which i need to spend money on, this isnt the only thing i have to spend money on. as long as i can play the games on decent settings with a fair frame rate, then that will do for now. lots of people say to spend as much as you can, but i dont think thats the best idea, since most parts go down in price after about 6 months. why do you think i should spend closer to a grand for?
