I visted the Dell website after seeing they offer pcs as low as $350, and I plan on getting one for my B-day. But after visiting a few other sites, I noticed that HP, Gateway, and Dell each charge more or less for particular options. Are there other good, trustworthy places to buy from online? It would be mostly for standard internet/word processing use and I'd really like to do some home recordings on it. These are the things I was looking for: 15 or 17" flatscreen monitor Has to have a printer, even a cheap one is fine 512 dual ram (my current pc has 95 ) 40-80 gig of memory (my current pc has 7gig ) A standard XP OS I want a good processor, so I imagine I should get a Pentium 4 over a Celeron. Does it make that big a difference? Cheap speakers DVD rom drive and CD-rw drive (maybe a DVD drive and a DVD-rw drive) I plan on adding a M-Audio soundcard at some point, so I think the standard intergrated sound would be fine Floppy drive Microsoft Works programs I was hoping to keep it around $850 or less, but I don't know if I can. Any advice? Places to look? I certainly can't build it myself.
