Yesterday, an acquaintance asked me counsel about buying a new desktop personal computer. I thought first of this post by George Ou:
Merry Christmas everyone! I'm off for the week but I thought I'd bring you something special for the holidays. One of the more common questions I get from friends and readers is "what kind of PC should I get". My personal preference has always been to build my own PC. If building a PC is not your cup of tea, I still recommend a custom PC where you select the parts and pay someone a small fee to assemble it because you still get a much better PC for your money. If you don't know what parts to select, that's where this article comes in handy where I tell you what parts to pick and why I picked them.If you're in the market, I recommend checking out Mr. Ou's post. Even if you don't end up building your own, it ought to give you some ideas as you scope out what's available.
