I bought my first PC 2 years ago, a Gateway select 850, which is still working fine, but now I am looking to buy another one with higher spec, as I do not have a CDRW, I find it a bit slow, I only got a 20GB hard drive, and I do not know enough to do some upgrading myself. I find those specifications limiting, so I would like my next PC to have all the pros and cons to last me for a good while, obviously PCs are evolving so fast that it'll need to be upgradable. I need advice on specifications needed (type of hard drive, processor, USB 2.0?,graphic cards...). I have been looking at the Poweroid website, they are offering a wide range of PCs at all prices, I have been looking at the poweroid 3201 and the poweroid 7011, (go for Athlon, which I have, or for P4?), they can do upgrades when time comes, and the aftersales service and support seems top, evesham seems to habe good ratings as well. Built quality is a plus, novatech seems to sell PC at a cheaper end, but I believe if you want quality you need to pay the price.
Any advice would be mostly welcome.
