    Alright, I'm living with my parents yet cuz I'm a baby. SO here's my dilemma. I'm currently using my ex-gf's eMachine that she wants back because my old computer (Something I got from Cyberpowersystems) crapped out on me. It looked like a resistor blew and burned part of the mobo. I think the HD should still be good along with the optical drives. I need the data off of that Hard drive.

    So here we go. I need a new computer. I am against shelling out a big amount to a place like Cyberpower because I had 2 Geforce 4's die on me from there, and this fire that killed my computer. I sort of wanted to get a Dell and pay for it monthly. They have a good warranty. It WILL BE a gaming computer. With a little bit of schoolwork involved. So help me. What should I do? Get a Dell, or what? Or are there other places where I can pay per month? That's an easy way to go. Or can I build a good computer with just parts? I really wouldn't know what to do there. If I were to go that route I'd have to borrow money from the parents and pay them back every week or whatever.

    So what should I do? BTW...the machine will be for CS:S, DoD:S, and BF2

    If you are uncomfortable with building one, I would recommend dell.

    if you wan't to build one, go to newegg to see prices for parts
