People say dont get dell because they build theres and building brings the most satisfaction, out of gateway, HP, Emachines, and Dell Actually Say Dell has good buys, It just takes a little digging. But thats going by Brand, Ill help you pick one out, What do you want to use it for?

Are you a gamer, Surfer, Chatter, Programmer, Student, Or just want to get your own computer? lol

And How much are you thinking of spending?

BTW: Whatever you do, Dont get An Intel Celeron, Theyre crap, I dont care how cheap they are

You are capable of building one! Its not hard at all. If you know how to put a okug in a socket your be fine. Its really intersting to and youll enjoy it more than just buying one.

I didnt know what I was doing but I managed it and im stupid!

yeah, I managed it to and my computer in my specs below was my first build Very happy with it, and want to make a new one as soon as possible...

All you need is a basic knowledge of how the parts fit together, and thats rather simple. Once you know that, the instruction manuals that come with the products would help you a load...usually pictures which aren't that hard to follow. But you shouldn't even need them.

Build one, and you'll gain alot from it. If you keep buying from companies, you aren't going to get good deals, and you will never learn!

If you don't want to build your own (it's pretty straightforward because everything goes in one way), then you'll have to go with manuafacturers like Dell, HP/Compaq, eMachines, or Gateway. Of those 3 choices, I prefer HP/Compaq because they have very fast and quality tech support. Way better than sloppy Dell. FOr the money you're willing to spend, you could build yourself a very nice PC.
