My budget for the new computer is:
Below $1000 ideally the less expensive the better, but i still want good quality, but i guess that's what everyone wants.
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
I plan to use it primarily for games that i'd get from steam etc. Probably would browse the web as well.
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
I prefer windows 7 but i have gotten use to windows 8, as for browsers i typically use firefox.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Well i was a fps shooter player on consoles, but i'm looking to starting computer gaming. I've played some of the Total war games, mount & Blade, path of exile, and league of legends. I just recently got a game called Nether off of steam to find it doesn't work very well at all on my computer now. So typically i've played strategy types of games, but i've been seeing some of the games like nether, day z, the forest a lot of survival or horror games and i find my self wanting to try them.
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?
i usually close programs when done.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
No music, and right now probably less than 10 pictures so not a lot.
I've been looking at amazon and found some possibilities but i'm not sure what's best or if there are better computers out there for the price. If someone could order these computers on which are best that would be nice.
