I'm about to have to buy a prebuilt computer...
something I haven't had to do for a looong time. I'm having shipping address issues, I can't ship where I live, but I can have onepackage delivered to a relatives address. So prebuilt pc it is. I'm so used to building them....
What is the current take on different companies? Someone recommended HP, saying they let you make some upgrades yourself. I don't know about that, but if I buy one at Best Buy, I can take it in there during the warranty period. Dell you have to ship it off.... no go. Well, unless I want to crack it open myself and void the warranty, I'm not really opposed to that. Used to it on my systems. However, a long time ago my mom had one and she said you have to buy Dell parts, do they still do that? What about Gateways?
Oh yes, and video cards and Vista, anything I should be wary of with brands and incompatibility with Aero? Or any drivers for Vista interfering with games? Namely, The Sims 2? (Don't laugh. I am a girl.)
