So, I do quite a bit of gaming. I have a relatively good card that does the trick quite well for the games that I like to play and is plenty capable of playing new games that come out as well.
Everything else with the PC is at least six years old (Got the PC as a birthday present back in High School) and has a multitude of issues that don't stop it from working, but keep adding up and I'd imagine its days are quite limited. The performance is terrible.
I need a different PC, basically.
I plan on salvaging the card: PCI-E Gforce 9600 GT or something along those lines. Possibly the hard drive as well, at least as a secondary drive as it is quite large.
Everything else I am going to scrap.
I've been looking at the idea of either getting a refurbished PC with a PCI-E slot, or a new basic computer and putting my drive and card into it as both work fine and are the newer additions to my current PC.
Where is a good place to look for a decent refurbished PC online?
Or if refurbished isn't worth the money:
Where is a good place to find a new, basic everyday computer I can upgrade?
Note: I am a working college student and only have around 300 dollars to spend on this. Any more and I'm looking at eating Ramen for the rest of the month.
