I'm building my daughter a new computer and I wanted to get your input. I did
look at the stickies (surprise, surprise!!)
. Most if not all came out of b1gapl's recommendations. She will use the computer for college, internet and games (namely Sims and Harry Potter), no online or intense games. Limited budget is the main concern and all will be ordered from newegg.
