I'm in the market for a new desktop computer to replace my old compaq. I'm going to be using the computer for recording audio, listening to music, surfing the internet, and design work (dreamweaver, photoshop, etc.) I've been told, by people on other forums, that I would probably want a quad core system in order to get the best performance for my needs. I'd like to spend as little as possible, but I know I'm going to have to spend a fair amount of money in order to get a nice computer.
I've come up with a couple options by looking around on the net.
I'm not stuck on these brands. I know about sites, like the cyberpower site, that let you customize every aspect of the computer, but I'm kind of intimidated by all the different options that I would have to choose from.
Any help is greatly appreciated
