    Default New Computer

    Gosh I hate the thought of purchasing a computer AGAIN.
    I like desktop ones. We do have laptop but thats not for me for how I use the computer.

    So here is the million dollar question WHICH ONE? The one I have is a Gateway and I thought I was set for awhile but nope it keeps shutting down on me.

    Send suggestions. Oh this one here is 6 gb and I see 4gb/ Whats the difference. Now when answering me remember I know the basic on and off switch of a computer.

    How old is the one you have now?
    It may just need a little work or cleaning.
    As for new, Asus motherboard.

    Do you do anything besides Email and internet with your PC Nancy?
    I'd be glad to help you pick one. Some of the choices are difficult If you don't need a hotrod.
    It would help to know what you have now so we can try to avoid losing any kinds of programs you are accustomed to using. The move from XP to Windows 7 isn't too jaring, but you lose a built in Email client. Windows 8 is difficult for some people who like the way some things have been done since Win 3.1 So I would highly advise getting a WIN 7 unit if you can find one.

    I would not buy a full package, we are all getting to the age that a really big monitor makes the experience a lot more comfortable I would recommend up to 24-27 inch with hdmi input. Let me go look for you a good deal this is a Pretty darn nice set up that would even allow you to do some video editing or other intensive work like having 15 gajillion windows open

    These are all good systems, I would build my own, As I did C~Scapes but while it would cost more it would be a powerhouse. Were I select Optimum performance parts. Most people are just fine with a Dell or HP and they have good tech support and drivers written for the specific combos of components.
    US geeks have some complaints but truly they work just fine, I would recommend uninstalling any crap bundled Virus software like Mcaffee or Norton and simply use the optional windows update to Microsoft security essentials. Spend the first few days doing updates there will be a ton of them and it takes a few days for them all to show so just keep hitting windows and or the Dell HP update button till no more appear over a several day to a week period. DO NOT WAIT FOR AUTO UPDATE TO DO IT. and don't do any of the optional updates unless you have a specific reason to. Except of course the Microsoft security essentials.

    Also What you will find is that most of them do not come with a lot of bundles software like Microsoft word. so you will have to get that separate.
    I really did not like the Windows 8 interface and the fact you are forced to create a Microsoft account and buy all your software through its store.

    I can't find the information. By all means I am sure Root knows what he is doing. I just thought this information was helpful to know how many GB she may need and for the processer is all!

    That last one I posted for 172 should still be great for that still, The processor speed is right up there but I What you can do the soup it up a little by upgrading the RAM But 4 is plenty for most everything except rendering video and if you want to seriously edit HD video then we are going to have to step it up a notch.


    The Games on FB are not the same games that are refereed to when you see gamer computer. However the same Graphic processor unit (GPU) carries the load for video stabilization and other advanced features.

    The important things are fundamental architecture because that sets your limits for everything else. Memory is an easy upgrade Go for 4 or 8 but that 4 gig will not make a Duel core Pentium® D Processor (The 172.00rig) perform like the Intel® Core™ i3

    I guess we should talk Budget, and then I can get you the optimal tricked out PC that will not leave you wanton. The HP Pavilion 500-490 Desktop in the fist link I posted has some muscle and may be your best bet but if your willing to spend a tiny bit more we could look at moving into a 4 core or even an 8 core like mine.

    Not really ! They add a load but if your driving a semi its not noticeable you would be surprised at what all can be run if you have the power. (until one program starts battling with another )

    On the other hand the garbage software that comes along with some stuff is really an issue with your browser and smart cruising on the net. learning to avoid garbage and not trusting some free software to purge it for you.

    The biggest unnecessarily ridicules loads on most peoples devices are Facebook Google and Netflix . Netflix is because of silverlight and encryption the other two are all the data they are tracking on your behavior so they can put you in little boxes.

    Thanks everyone. So much to understand here. I also at times watch movies from Amazon on my computer, lots of pictures, I would love to make videos but clueless.

    Sorry for short answers but never know when I am going to be kicked off with this computer.

    I have been sending all my files on the computer I use to one of my email addresses. (and backing it up on a external drive)

    Root I was always told the more photos, music and game data you keep on your hard drive, slows it down. Cookies are another thing that are suppose to slow things up.
