It is time for me to get a new computer, and I would really like to keep it under or around $1000 with the monitor. I thought about building one, but after adding up the components, I am not saving anything, and I figure if I am not going to save a few hundred dollars or so, then I may as well just buy one. I have found some Dell's I can build (core i5 or i7, 8GB RAM) for around $1000, but then I found this Gateway
at Costco which seems to have pretty good specs. Is that a decent model for what I need? Is that video card ok? I don't play games, and the most demanding thing I will be doing is organizing and editing photos, and I just got an HD camcorder so I will have to do something what the video soon.
