    So, I'm not a computer guru by any means, but I'd like to get a new, fast computer that doesn't have all this random and useless crap installed on it from the manufacturer. I just want something with a good amount of RAM and hard drive space, with a decent graphics card (not a huge gamer). Are there any sites for idiots like me? Or does anyone on OT want to build me a tower for about 300 bucks? :)

    Get a dell and then format it as soon as it comes.

    You're not gonna find a custom built one for 300 :dunno:

    If you have a friend that's good at computers you could get them to build it for you as well.

    Look at that book "Hacking Windows XP" or "Hacking Windows Vista"

    I utilized the information in those books for my computers (I have both home-built and a wal-mart special e-machine) and both PCs run great. In fact I use my little half ass e-machine the most. Im not a hardcore gamer either but for webhosting, browsing etc etc, if you put a little time into it, it can be an alright piece.
