Default looking for a new PC n im too lazy to build

My PC is finally dying on me. 6 years is long enough right? So yeah, im really not wanting to search for parts n crap, i just wanna buy a new one. Anyone have any good ideas on whats good out in the market? i havent checked in a while. Im looking for a relatively fast computer. Lots of gaming n music n such. Can anyone help me out?

Or if i should REALLY build my own again i guess ill do it...so if someone wants to piece together something that'd be cool.....im just tired of fixin this damn one haha...

thanks a bunch...later

building one by yourself will get you the best bang for your buck, but if you don't want to, i won't force you or try to persuade you.

What i do need, is a price range, and what that price range includes (like do we need to save room for a moniter with the computer, or are you using an old one)

I also would like to know what games you do play/plan on playing so we can build accordingly.

Lastly would be the operating system. do you want to stick to windows XP, or do you want to do Vista?

Pretty good build. I would only change the graphics card to something newer.

Like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150185

I guess im gonna build one haha. Well i can afford pretty much anything at this moment...but 1000 would be TOPS...600-800 sounds reasonable. I also live in the US. I play games like Red Orchestra, FEAR, WC3, HL2, CS:S. I already have the HDD's, the DVD drive, floppy, n fans. Just Need Mobo, RAM, Graphics, n CPU.

videocard

that's about 800 dollars or so..
if you have an old video card though i'd stick with that for now cuz AMD/ATI will be coming out with their r6xx series this month, and since you're a gamer you'd definitely want to give the r6xx series a try.
