So when faced with any large question, i turn to OT. Ok, so maybe I don't but figure the more advice the better. I have about $2K put aside for a new computer. My last one (Dell) cost 2500 and i have had it since 2001. - so 6 yrs with minimal upgrades, not too shabby. But since I haven't looked since 2001, I am way behind. I know I want Dual Core if not Quad Core processors, and a big hard drive. after that I am pretty open. I would like to have the ability to stream media from my pc to my tv. and to play games and do day to day stuff. All that said... Any suggestions, tips, buyers guide you can recommend, where to start? Yes, i know I should build my own but do not want the headache. So short of building my own... what else? Thanks p.s. yeah and PC only please, I do not want a Mac.
