Hi Juza,

This is a New Zealand forum, so I think the products available here will differ from what you can get where you live, and will be priced differently too - I assume you're in the USA or Australia??

In any case, I'd suggest you have a look at Dell's website, and see what sort of system you can get for your pricerange. Some people here will tell you to stay away from their PCs, but in terms of price and features, they can't really be beaten.

Otherwise, visit your local PC store and see what they have available. You may need to add extra RAM to it later on, to get the amount you want at the price you want.
