Budget I have a budget of up to $800, a bit more if needed.

Uses I will use this for general web use, downloading lots of files and music. I don't really play games on it, expect for Warcraft 3, which ran on my old piece of junk 512 MB system. I will also be personalizing and tweaking the system.

Software I will use MS Office, Adobe Photoshop CS4 for simple tasks, Chrome, Firefox, 7zip, Warcraft3

Games Like I've stated I won't really be playing many games on it except for Warcraft 3, and simple online ones.

Running Programs I do keep a good amount of programs running.

Storage I only store lots of music on my computer, no pictures or videos.

I have had a Compaq 512MB, 200 GB system. Its worked great up until a year ago. I system restarted about 3 times since then, each time it slowed down after a while. About a week ago it just completely died. Now I need a new computer, and I know a bit about computers, but I would like some advice. Any brand, any computer.

Well MaximumPC has a good PC budget its about $647 dollars or it is


I would probably change the CPU since you have a budget of $800 I would probably get a quad core or even a Hexa-Core

If you want a budget Hexa-Core here is one AMD Phenom II X6 T1055 or the T1090 if you are looking to overclock
