    I have been using my desktop computer since 8 years, which has intel motherboard, p4 processor, 512 mb RAM (out of 4 RAM slots 3 are not working) 80 gb harddisk with CD ROM and floppy disk drive fitted to CPU. I am not much tech savy, so wanted to know a good configuration pc which I thinking to buy this week and I want to install Windows 7 operating system in it.

    How much are you willing to spend? And where do you live (so we know how much stuff costs)? And what will you do with it? Just general use or you want in on gaming? Photoshop artist or something?

    Thats a tall order without info. We need to know a few things.

    1. What is the primary use of the computer?
    2. What is your budget.
    3. Do you need a monitor or are you gonna use your old one?
    4. Mouse, Keyboard? Same question as 3.
