Hello, I have been saving money for a couple of years now. Now that i have enough to actually buy something good, I was wondering if someone could help me out with finding a good pc for under $1500. I dont mind building a PC but i may need a bit of help. Thanks :)

As your budget is in dollars I assume you are not in the UK? So this could make it difficult to specify a particular make/model PC as it might not be obtainable in your country.

This also will apply if you decide to build as components might me very expensive where you are. I recently advised a guy from Brazil where he was coming to the UK to visit family and going to buy his components here because of the high prices at home.

So a bit more detail of your country of origin. Cheers.

This will give you some idea of what to go for when considering your build . I have budgeted towards the top end of your budget . you may find prices slightly differ in the US http://3xs.scan.co.uk/ConfigureSystem.asp?SystemID=1015 . Hope this helps . NickF
