I need to get a new computer to replace my Sony VAIO CR notebook (it always run hot when gaming), I know nothing about computers except the simplest stuff, so I have no idea what I'm looking for when buying one, and oblivious to building one. I wanna buy a new desktop pc cuz I heard they can handle heavy gaming better then a notebook would, I dont have a budget. My primary usage is extensive internet browsing, email, gamimg (world of warcraft and other online role-playing game), music, photos and graphics editing. I tend to have 6 or more programs running at the same time and I also store a lot of pictures or music on my pc. I was looking for something with a i5 or i7 processor.

Anyone have suggestions?

Alienware? I've heard good things about their desktops. There's tons of youtube vids of really cool tricked out ones that glow in the dark and actually look kind of scary. :blink:

I have a computer made by Puget systems and I dont hesitate recommending them. Probably the best one of the ten or so I bought since 1986. Really good customer service.

<<I wanna buy a new desktop pc...>>

Well...everything but gaming is something that any desktop system made in last 5 years easily handles, IMO.

As a reference point...it helps if you post some idea of what you are willing to spend...otherwise, you may end up with a list of "if I had no monetary constraints" wish list by members.
