Hello All,
I am looking for a new desktop and was wondering if anyone had any advice/information. I am on a limited budget and am comfortably spending around 800 total, 600 on the tower and 200 for a decent monitor. Does anyone know of any computers that would be ok? I mainly will play blizzard games like starcraft, world of warcraft and the new diablo when it comes out. Other than that I will primarily use internet and microsoft office. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. THanks and have a great day!

Chris

Do you want to build a computer or buy one off-the-shelf? If you already had the monitor, $800 would be a good budget for quality parts, however, the monitor portion drastically reduces what you can get, but for basic home office stuff, it should suffice. If you buy one instead of build, you will get a PC, but it won't be quite as good quality wise.

This computer, paired with this monitor would be good for basic gaming and home office tasks.

I wanna buy one off the shelf.I am not knowledgeable enough to build one, any suggestions? I could actually spend a grand total, if that would help. I had an apple imac in college and have not had a desktop pc since highschool. I have a laptop now, but want a desktop to use for work and play games on.

The items I suggested would work for light gaming. The Dell Inspiron One 2305 is also decent. The Vaio L Series is also good at about a grand. None of these computers will allow you to upgrade the video card yourself, though, you can customize the Vaio to a large extent before purchasing. Any of Velocity Micro's Vector systems would work, though you would have to buy a monitor. Unless you are willing to build a PC, getting a high-end unit to play games on that is cost effective is tricky.

I would buy the Sony Vaio one because of the customization options.
