    new computer

    i'm on a budget, i'm not building one myself. don't say anything about building my own because it's not happening. i know it's cheaper and better to do it but i'm not doing it. it's not for gaming it's just to get a different computer. i'm getting it within a few days


    anyway here are my options

    Acer Aspire Desktop Computer featuring AMD A6-3600 Processor (AX3470-EB30P) : Everyday Computing - Best Buy Canada

    HP Pavilion Slimline Desktop featuring AMD Athlon II 250 Dual-Core Processor (S5610F) - Refurbished : Refurbished Desktop Computers - Best Buy Canada

    HP Pavilion Desktop Computer featuring AMD Athlon II 640 Quad Core (P6716F) - English - Refurbished : Refurbished Desktop Computers - Best Buy Canada

    Well if it isn't for gaming, I would pick the first or second offer, but most likely for second considering it is the enough and have a good price, at least for me.

    #3. I checked the features and that one seems like the best option. quad core + 1TB of memory + 64 bit Windows 7.

    I wouldn't know, though that's way better than what I have. You might be able to run BF3 at low settings, at least, so I'd call it good.

    the 3rd is the best
    the graphics are average but it has a great amount of vram
    and you can upgrade to a new video card because it has an open pci-e 16x

    Just because it's not for gaming doesn't mean you shouldn't built it.
