i would like to play games but the "gaming" machines seem expensive. i found a comp that i like. from best buy.
it is an HP a1230n
my friend says that HPs are [bleep] and definately wouldn't let me game on it. but it has an AMD 3700 and a GHZ FSB and a GB of ram, (upgradable to 4) which i heard is very good for gaming. i know i would need a new video card. and i wouldn't want the windows media center. im a student and can get windows XP Pro for like 25 bucks so soft ware isn't a problem..
Now should i just build a comp or just buy this. best buy always has this one on sale and for $50 dollars less that the actual computer it also includes a monitor and printer. but i have to wait on AVG about a month for it to go onsale......
There are questions... should i get the HP or build. and the ultimate question (which i can never get a straight answer for is which is better AMD or Intel)
