Default Buying a new computer...

I am looking to buy a computer that is fast and of good quality and I need help if you could sort of point me in the right direction. I am not looking to have any games on it or anything like that as all i use the computer for is research and write paper for school. I also would like to buy the computer in person so that would eliminate Any help would be appreciated...

eMachines T6534

This is at Circuit City. best Buy says it is sold out of them right now.

Since I don't know your location, I can't be more specific. But eMachine's are decent pre-builts... just not sexy.

This model comes with a good processor, 512MB of RAM (never go any lower), a DVD burner, a 200 gig hard drive, and a PCI-E slot.

To make it a gaming machine, buy a couple of gig of RAM and a decent PCI-E graphics card.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
