Build a custom pc if you have the ability and knowledge or like an adventure. There are some pretty good refurbished computers at www.surpluscomputers.com, if you want to just get something you won't have to worry about go with a brand name new computer, they don't cost all that much more. You can take advantage of the promotions they are always running. Go to

www.dellpromos.com

Or any of a number of sites like that to get a promotional code and get a good discount on a dell.
