  • 2 GB of RAM for Windows XP, Vista users* or Windows 7 users
  • 12 GB of Available Hard drive space
  • PC must have a vendor manufactured date less than six years in age as some older models are not compatible with our secure environment (Example: If today's date is 1/1/2012, the PC manufacture date should be no older than 1/1/2006)
  • Must have an available USB 2.0 port with all unnecessary peripheral items ( i.e. cameras, printers, game controllers, webcams, etc.) removed during work hours.
  • USB 3.0 ports are not supported.

You could also call some computer shops in your area and ask what it would cost to custom build a desktop to your specifications.

It's an option worth exploring. You can compare prices and features of custom built and what you find online and decide which one is best for you.

@ blue ice, good suggestion i forgot about new egg i have tried qvc and hsn because they have flex pay options and i am not trying to spend a big lump sum as this was unexxpected but i dont seem to see anything laptop or desktop with a 3.0 gzh processer for under $800.

 

@ queen e i have tried some of those computer shops but the problem is they can build the ultimate pc that would be perfect hardware wise but the shell they use is usually more than 6 years old and the test i have to run will detect that which is the problem with my current pc. even know it has been upgraded time and time again and is at tip top shape its manufacture date is 2006

Another thing, if you are not in a hurry you could buy and build the rig in three or four months...

 

You would wind up with a better preforming PC, if you built it yourself...They are not hard to build...

 

Dat is what I did...I created my own flex payment...
