What I meant was that you should choose components for the performance you require for the intended use of the computer. The main purpose of my current desktop is to edit video. I want it to encode my vid files quickly rather than slowly. That's why it's running a Core2Duo processor. I also want to be able to play a few games on it but not those games that require an outrageously priced video card. So, I built it using the components I needed to satisfy both requirements without having to spend money on a very expensive stuff. There are a ton of different components you can use to build up a computer, from $800 video cards to $400 motherboards. What will be "good enough" for you, you have to decide.
and can you explain a little more on the components thing?

No one can tell you what the “best” AV out there is. We have a general consciences among us of what is, or might be better, but very few of us have tried every single AV out there. I can tell you this though, just because some AV’s out there use more resources and slow you system a little does not mean they are working harder and protecting you better
Two of the best free AV programs are Avast, and AntiVir. And remember only use one of them, and it's a good idea to set these to receive automatic updates so you are always as fully protected as possible from the newest virus threats.
And if your interested in becoming malware staff just click on the help wanted link in my signature and follow the application process

yeah, i totally agree...what do you have to do to become staff?
You basically go through a training series, learning how to use HijackThis, and other forms of malware removal.

like, its not that i don't want to, but i wouldn't want that responsibility of being on staff, but i do want to learn more about malware...or, really, anything that has to do with a computer. like, the class i take teaches a good bit, and it great, but its not fast enough...do you (or anybody else reading this) know anywhere that's like, reliable to learn stuff, and doesn't cost money?

What is GeekU? It's an intensive, instructor lead training course that teaches the techniques and tools of malware removal. The training is geared toward removal in an online environment, like this forum. While it's hoped graduates will "pay it forward" by offering assistance here, it is not a requirement. All training is free.
You are not required to assist in malware removal here on the forums, because all the work is voluntary. However it is greatly appreciated if you do assist.

What class are you taking? is it at another malware school? Here's the kicker GeekU is designed to allow you to work at your own pace. Therefore we cannot give you a specific timeline as to how long it will take to finish. However, there is no fast-track. It will take several months of steady work to reach graduation. Most people graduate in 4 to 6 months.
It’s not easy, and its time consuming, but it can be done with great personal reward. However you have to be willing to make the commitment, you cant just stay for a week or two and learn everything that is needed to effectively remove malware
