    Question Help me choose!

    I wan't to do on a computer is:

    ~Illustate drawings
    ~Burn CD's and mp3s
    ~Basically Work (I'am a growing B+ studen't trying to be a A+)
    ~Games (which is only the sims that I ever do play on a computer)

    I'm looking for a PC not a imac or any mac for that matter.
    Yet I'm looking for the best qualities for a reasonable price.

    Can You please Help Me?

    Ideally, I would tell you to either buy the parts and build it yourself, or have someone knowledgeable enough that you know do it for you, but since your asking here for advice I am going to assume that neither case is an option for you. A shame really, since the best PC's are custom built and cost a considerable less than their mass manufactured equivalents.

    In that case, I would have to agree with pyoro-pyoro, Dell tends to have good deals on desktop’s. And since you can already post here I’m going to assume that you already have a monitor, keyboard, etc. So, just buying a new tower shouldn’t be that costly. You should be able to get one that suits your needs from anywhere between $600-800, possibly less depending on the promotions being run at the time.

    well... a PC and MAC can do the first 3 on your list, a mac has a very limmited selction of games to choose from so i'm going with PC -A) they have more games and B) they are far cheaper!!

    Have you conciderd up-grading?? *especially if you are a PC based system as the parts are cheaper and in vast varietys* a much cheaper way of making your computer better?

    i would suggest getting a PC... (i would not know where to suggest to get one though..)

    get a comp that meets these requirments for playing the sims as these requirements are powerful enough to do the 1st 3 things you stated. but since comps are cheap, finding a comp with good specs shouldn't be too hard. just look around at various vendors to see what's out there and if you're really interested in having a custom built comp, then you better be more specific in what you want otherwise you'll be confused as hell.

    cd burners are pretty much a standard component you'll find in various vendors.
