Two things:

1. What are you going to use it for. A computer that performs well in one task won't do so in an other.

2. There are other things than performance to considers, even if money is no problem. Like quality and ease of use.

We could build you a monster gaming machine that will play games like never before but if you do alot of multitasking it wouldn't be the same configuration.

The current high end processors will all handle Vista, but the current champ among all processors is the Intel Core Duo Extreme.

The other major requirement would be a video card with its own memory of at least 256mb and a mb that will support it.

Most if not all of the new high end motherboards have PCIe video slots which will.


A Windows Vista Premium Ready PC includes at least:

1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor (Bigger is better)

1 GB of system memory.
Support for DirectX 9 graphics with a WDDM driver, 128 MB of graphics memory (minimum -you really need 256 or more), Pixel Shader 2.0 and 32 bits per pixel. The ability to run Aero

40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space. Depending what you want to do you might need a significantly larger hard drive, (possibly Sata which is faster)

DVD-ROM Drive. (You probably will wnt a burner)

Audio output capability.

Internet access capability. (built in nic)


If gaming or movie editing is something that is important you need a processor that can handle it, lots of RAM and lots of hard drive space.

You can spend anywhere from around $1200 to well over $4000, depending on how fast you want it to be.

What are you going to use it for and do you want a laptop or not?

Hi moha.

The gurus at PC Mag have cobbled together their idea of a good computer.

That guide is slightly old, and new tech has come out since then. I'm not saying that the computer there is a bad one, I'm just saying you might wanna do some research into AMD's AM2 socket, and Intel's Core 2 Duo line.

EDIT: Ok, I actually saw the post date... heh. But why are they using the 939 socket, when going AM2 is cheaper?

I am sure they will come out with new, more capable processors and then so will Intel.

That has been happening since computers were first invented.
