OK, I am not very well versed in newer computers. My wife and I are looking to purchase a new desktop. Our current one is about 6 years old and in cpu terms is ancient.
We do not need anything extravagant by any stretch. We mostly use our computer for internet browsing, music, and some gaming. We want to be able to do the whole picture thing, and my wife is big on her IPod/ITunes. We do not need a monitor or printer either. What are some good places to look for a desktop? I've looked at dell.com, Microcenter, etc.
We would like to stay in the $500 range. I found one that seems good to me. It's a HP Pavilion, and priced at $480. I'll list the basic components:
Pentium Dual-Core E2180
2G PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM
500GB 7200RPB SATA HD
SuperMulti DVD Writer
128MB Nvidia GeForce 7100 SE card
I'd like to have a DVD burner so I can burn OSU game and such.
Anyway, any thoughts and help is much appreciated.
