    Good post. I’m actually thinking of purchasing a new computer for my home. Since Black Friday is around the corner I figured I could get a good deal that time. It’s just bad that I have to deal with such a slow computer in the mean time. Computers have become almost more important than the vehicle.

    Looks like you’ve described my PC in your article. Except for the Windows 7 OS, it exactly like you’ve described above :)

    You’ll certainly need to consider your budget buying that PC. Low-end budget systems will save you a lot of money and are suitable for most home users. High-end systems with the latest Athlon 64 or Intel Pentium 4 processors will cost more and will be more suitable for those who want to play the latest 3D games or do heavy video or graphics editing.
