We are looking for a brand new system, and my hub and I are rookies! We are thinkin about those Dell Desktops, but I was wondering if it would be better to have an independent guy build it?
I figured I'd ask you all what the industry standards are for speed, dependablility, etc.
I get way too confused wading through the gigabytes, Rams, etc.
What really do we need to have a fast and efficient computer that won't bog down while surfing, or refuse to cooperate in secured sites, etc.
We've had a Sony Vaio for the last 6 years or so, It's been very moody and difficult, but I wonder if we messed it up somehow. I get a "fatal exception" shutdown every 10-15 minutes or so, and I've gotten used to re-booting the computer each time.
When I pay bills, I have to shut down the computer and restart after each and every one, because it can't cope with more that one......it freezes, then says I made a fatal error....or something like that.
Thanks for listening, I welcome and plead for any and all input you're willing to share!!!
Also, if we do get a new system, I'd like to know how not to screw it up like we did this one (I think!)
Thank you so much!, CpuPMS!!!
