    What computer should my sister get with a limit of $1500-$1750 canadian.

    My sister has saved up a lot from work and she has about $2000 left over after she pays her student loan so she wants to buy a nice computer (desktop.)

    I want her to get a good quality computer that will last a long time, it also has to be able to play The Sims 2 smoothly (her favourite game lol).

    I'm thinking a highend AMD 64 with a gig of ram and a radeon x800 pro, I cant build it so it needs to be one thats premade or from a site that does custom ones.

    Anyone know some names of good quality computer manufacturers sites? I don't know if Compaq or Dell is good quality so feel free to suggest anything. I prefer the store to be in Canada because of duty.

    Edit: Monitor, I'm thinking a 19" LCD.

    1,500.00 CAD = 1,266.65 USD
    1,750.00 CAD = 1,477.76 USD
    2,000.00 CAD = 1,688.78 USD

    you say you can't build it? Why not? you might be able to save alot of money doing that.

    But I don't like Dell but I'd recommend them as long as you do your homework on what you can get for what price and make sure you use coupon codes to help knock some cash off it.
