My laptop has crashed 3 times in only 15 months, so I want to look into purchasing a desktop...only problem is I have no idea where to start.

What would you guys suggest? Im looking for a quality computer that isnt too expensive- price isnt an issue, but Id rather not pay for things I wont use.

I will be running pretty much only the following programs: Firefox, Trillian, Full Tilt Poker, PokerTracker, PAHUD.

Thats it! Thanks for your help, and if you have any advice or comments feel free to share!

Maybe you should check out Dell, I've never owned one but I've heard they aren't too bad. You can go to the Website and check them out. If you don't want to run any high end games you should be able to get a good one for not too much. I would recommend at least 1 gig of ram for XP and 2gig for Vista. (I've not heard much good about Vista, yet).

Some body else should have other ideas....

If you are not big on gaming you could follow the suggestion by Wildabeast or go to your nearest walmart or check out Newegg

Dells are decent if you don't plan on popping the hood and tinkering with them. My lsat employer bought nothing but Dell computers (had a special deal for a discount with them) and I had nothing but trouble when they needed upgrading/repair.
