Default Help??

I'm looking for buy a new computer. Since i'm not so good with computers i am not sure whats good and not good. If someone could find me a Pre-built computer thats $600 or less that would be awesome. Highest $610. Also My keyboard is getting messed up so if someone could find me a nice cheap keyboard that would rock.

Also the computer will also be used for gaming and other stuff.

A 600 Pre-built will not play new games well.

So what games would you want to play?
Save more $$$.

I don't suggest prebuilts for gamming.

I suggest building your own.
You would Need AT THE LEAST.!
1500$ for an adequete gaming computer, That includes, all components, case, moniter, keyboard, speakers and mouse.
This is just my opinion. however it usally holds true.

the first one would be the best, but you should build your own.

They all suck. Video card all the same and not nearly good enough to play new games on Medium settings even.

The first one is the best one, but it is still not very good. Do you think you'd be capable of building your own? (It's not very hard) Try and save up more money for then you can get something better.
