    Need New Comp.

    I am looking to get a new computer. It doens't have to be too fancy. It doesn't need to make coffee when I press a button or anything like that.

    I just need something better than my crappy

    Pentium 3 933mhz
    256mb SDRAM
    40 gig HDD
    64mb Geforce 4 MX 420.


    I am looking to spend between 600 and 800 dollars.

    If you need a new one, go to http://www.newegg.com and configure a system. Just so you know, in the hardware forum, if you post we will make a system up for you. This usually results in the best prices and comatibility.
