I wasn't sure where else this should go.
At first I was considering building a gaming computer (mostly because I'm fasinated with technology and such, and think that it'd be a good experience - following guides online to help, of course). However, I was talked out of this, and soon realised that the specs I wanted would cost pretty much just the same (if not a bit more) than a Dell, so I decided to go for that instead.
I really want a desktop computer as my laptop is pretty much kaput (either the fan has a problem, or the program that runs the fan does), as well as some other minor problems that involved reformatting it, and now the OS takes up most of the space on the C:, the rest of which is taken up by daily running of the computer, making it hella slow (I think it's got 24mb to work with if I start it up). Despite that teh screen is cracked, pretty much meaning that acer has raped my chances of ever picking up a laptop again (or any acer product - so far all three computers (one desktop, two laptops) from them have begun to break).
This computer costs me about £1,100 (or $1,758 to those using the American dollar - or so google says), and it would be able to play crysis at recomended settings, but I don't know if I should set the benchmark so high, it's not like I have crysis, or am going to play it any time soon, I'd probably want to re-visit all my old games first, and as such don't know if I should just get (or build - which would allow me to upgrade parts later) a meh / good computer, seeing as I currently only has a bit over £400 ($639)
That, and I also want to buy a falcon, which costs a little over £200 methinks.
Any advice? D:
