    If you build a computer it will last you a lot longer as you can upgrade it as long as you want without compatibility issues and such as you would get with ones from HP, Dell, etc.

    Well, how much money do you have for a computer? If you know computers, go build one. If you are clueless.... get yourself a nice Mac or VAIO.

    Why don't you list out the specs on your current PC so we can advise whether or not a new PC is needed, or just some simple upgrades. :)

    Depending on how old your system is, upgrading can be cheap. I went from a cheap factory installed Power unit to 450watt one and dropped in a new video card for 130 bucks shipped to my house (Tiger Direct rocks!) Instaltion was done in about 10 mins (I did have to go to a computer shop to get a connector bridge as one power line was a tad short) But if you computer was new when Clinton was still in the White House, then yeah......build a new one :)

    An Apple computer??? Seriously dude? Apple computers are for people who don't know and/or don't care to know about computers. Not to mention, they are retardedly expensive for nothing more than a PC (new systems are intel based) with Apple software.

    SP....let me know what your budget is and what you want the computer to be capable of and I'll list out a decent system for ya. :)

    Fix the 1 you have with better parts and that way you can upgrade anytime you want with the latest and greatest parts with a new Motherboard. Thats what I do cause its cheaper in the long run to buy certain parts then it is to buy a whole new computer.
