Looking to buy a new desktop. Some of my games won't work on Mac, so I'll be sticking to Windows. I'm prepared to spend about $500 (just a guideline, a little higher is okay) on this thing, just looking for a good setup right off the shelves. I'm going to be using it for gaming, so I need one that can handle some pretty intense graphics. Obviously for $500 I won't be getting a top-of-the-line system, but I wanted to upgrade from what I got now, as some of the cooler games are starting to move out of my capabilities. Right now I have an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ running 2.20GHz, 2.0 GB RAM, with a GEForce 6600 LE. Hopefully y'all can tell me what to look for (there are a LOT of numbers on computer adds, and I don't know what they all mean) so I can get the most power for my money.
