Default building a new computer.

Hi this is my first time posting on this forum i have been reading for some time now. Im looking to build a new computer my budget will be $1750 tops. I was wondering if you could reccomend or basically tell me whats the best comp i could get for that amount.

btw i live in Canada so the prices would need to be converted.

www.canadacomputers.com (prices are already canadian)


this is where i would be buying most or all my parts from^^

Thanks.

What are you wanting to do with your PC, video editing, iNet surfing, gaming ?

Whats your main desire [ for your PC, no dirty stuff :P ] ?

This will help to decide what components better suit your needs.

our money is worth less than your's so everything will cost a bit more.

Have you heard of TigerDirect ? They are a canadian firm [ or so I`m told ] and their prices are cheaper than the company you supplied.

If you tell me exactly what you need for your PC and what you do with it, I will build a system for you. I use tigerdirect.ca and ncix.com for PC's and sometimes a canadacomputers reseller (local)

Also, what province you live in? And what's your PST in your province btw.

EDIT: Need PST rate and Province to try to do legal PST evasion
