I need to buy a new computer but since I've retired, I've not kept up with the world of computers. I play a lot of adventure and hidden object games. I also would like to be able to use the streaming games from Big Fish Games. I also put a lot of music on my computer. My last computer had approximately 7,000 songs on it and I'd like to do the same with a new one. I, of course, use it for email, shopping and researching web sites. Oh yeah, and Facebook. I would welcome any suggestions and also opinions on PC or laptop.Thanks

Do you have a budget and are peripherals like mouse/keyboard needed?

Well unfortunately my husbands illness took everything we had and I get a small widows benefit check of 600.00 per month so I have to save up to get a new computer. But I will do without everything to get a computer. The keyboard I have still works as does the mouse.

Sorry for rambling. I am not a big talker face to face but I tend to ramble electronically.

The Dell Inspiron i660s bundles the tower itself, a 20inch monitor and mouse/keyboard for $500 which can easily handle the tasks you want to do with it.
