Well, any computer, even from a well-known company, can have problems. Just a few clarifying questions:
1. Are you planning to use your current monitor?
2. What sort of things are you going to be doing on the computer? High graphics gaming or media manipulation, for example, will more or less dictate the kind of graphics card to look for. If you tell us how you use your computer, we can give better advice.
3. Have you considered building your OWN computer?
Regards,
John

Hello, One thing I have learned it doesnot matter what you spend on something, I guarantee you might have trouble with it. Actually there is no absolute way to say, "Buy this and you are set." First of all make a call to the local better business bureau and ask them for info on which one has the most problems. Also you can contact a local user group in your area and go to one of their meetings, ask about it. I recently bought a new computer thru Sam's Club. Actually it is the first oen I have ever bought brand new and did not build from scratch. I have had it for 2 years now and thank god it has not broke down on me yet. Knock, knock.
Actually the best type of system to get is a built from scratch computer from a local computer bilder as long as it is a reputable one, you can check with the BBB on who has the fewest complaints. Again a user group here is also a good indicator of what is best, since you have a concentrated group of people to ask quesetions to.

Happy hunting
