My budget for the new computer is:
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Win 7 or Win 8, is Win 8 anygood?
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Only play Civ 3 periodically but would like the option to play recent releases.
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
Probably run, Win, Firefox and outlook together. Occasionally other programs.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
I don't suppose so but I do store a some
