Does anybody have any advice on buying a new computer? I want to buy a new one now that I have some money, but I'm not really sure what to look for. Is it possible to get a good computer for under $500? Are there certain brands that I should look for or ones to avoid? Is it a good idea to buy refurbished PCs? Are there any specific stores that are good to buy from/have good deals?
I still have a monitor so all I'm buying is the tower.
Any help and advice would be appreciated!
