I don't know much about computers, but what kind of stuff are you looking for? What are you planning on using it for?

This could help narrow down the suggestions

Make sure you get a new one. Used ones generally aren't as "new."

I don't know much about all the different brands of computer. I've always had this computer and the computers we use at school. Even though I hate the ones at school.

If its a gaming pc that you want to be top range.
2 gigs ram, two hard drives one small and the other large install windows and your games on the small one and everything else on the big one, at least 2 ghz processor, graphics card 7800 gtx best value for money new graphics card, and for your parts my personal opinion is to go with pcie as it is cheap for a good product.

Stay away from Dell. For OEMs, Gateway is good. HP is less good. Dell is generally bad.

Don't buy anything less than an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 1GB RAM. Any Core 2 Duo is sufficient. Athlon X2s are slower, Pentium Ds are very outdated, and anything else is single core and totally worthless.

For the video card, get the cheapest card you can with the PC, but make sure the computer has a PCI-E slot. Upgrade the video card yourself and save yourself tons of $$.

I could price out building a custom PC for you if you're interested in that, but I'd also be happy to give you any more specific advice or answer any questions for you about an OEM computer. Just post here and ask or PM me directly.

i was assuming he would go for custom there is nothing really difficult about making a computer, all it is is plugging in chips and cables into pretty much the only place they fit...

There's a lot more to it than that. There's a lot to it that the vast majority of people can't handle or do.

If he wants to do it himself, I'm sure we'll give him plenty of help. It's not *that* hard but not a whole lot of people feel comfortable seating a heatsink on a processor.

i've never really had a problem with it at the end of the day they are a lot harder to break now than they were before, provided you make all the necessary precautions nothing bad will happen.
