Do you want it to be prebuilt (such as a compaq, hp, dell), or are you going to build it yourself? Building it would be a much cheaper alternative.

How much will you be willing to spend? Give us a budget and we will build you a computer without all that bullcrap prebuilt stuff... prebuilts suck... a 6-7hundred dollar computer can blow his 1000 dollar out of the water if you build it yourself.. most of the money in prebuilts dont go towards parts, it goes to their name.. so your not getting what you pay for

Well thanks for answering fast lol i wasnt expecting an answer for a day or so. Well anyways I dont care if its dell compawq whatever. I do not know how to build a computer or know how complicated it is. Im hoping for one already build but it doesnt have to be. For the other question The cheapest maybe 400$ and probally nothing over 1000$. Thanks for answering so fast. If building a computer is easy i might be able to do it. If you have anymore questions just ask

Really good build

Cheaper but still good build


Remember you'd need to add in shipping and cost for them to put it together for you.

edit: oops, if those don't show tell me
