I stumbled upon this site while looking for computer savvy people who might be able to offer some insight as to which base computer I'll be purchasing.
First off, as with most of us I believe, I am on a fairly cheap budget; i.e. $1,000 or less preferably.
I will probably be ordering online as well, as I've been hearing good things about NewEgg, and Tiger Direct.
I'll be pretty much using this computer for WoW and Music, but I also don't exactly want to limit it to just that, either. If it must be done for the sake of saving money, however, I suppose i could live with it.
Currently, I'm hoping to spend little on the actual computer itself ( >$600 ), and l to spend the rest on upgrades, Graphics Card, Ram if need be, PCU, ect.
To start it off, does anybody have any opinions on this computer?
I've never really heard of / dealt with the Acer brand before, anyone hear anything bad about them?
I like the price tag, as it leaves money for upgrades. The 3G Ram seems like a decent starting point, as my last comp only had 2G and ran perfect. The dual core is also nice. 640G Harddrive is probably way more than I need, but it's still nice to have.
and finally it comes with Windows 7, instead of Vista, which a couple I've seen only come with.
