Hello, I dont know much about computers. i understand most of the basic concepts and what not but im not way into it. I am studying architecture and i have a nice laptop for school, but i want to get a good desktop for home to run my program on. I was looking at pugetsystems.com for a custom computor but i have no idea what i need and i only want to spend around 3000 at the most.
$3k? Well with that, you could build just about anything you want for a desktop.
Although depending on the program you're using you could pay for a good performing computer for around $1k to $2k.
But right now, What program are you using? that will help us guide you in the right direction.
Just in case if you ever want to build you're own computer, We got several guides that can help you along the way from chosing parts you need all the way to trouble shooting for majority of the problems that you could encounter.
yeah, knowing how to build computers is a very nice life skill, and can save you a lot of money. however, if you want prebuilt, atleast you arent considering dell or alienware, thats a step in the right direction although i need to know what programs you use, you very well may be able to get a 1500-2000$ computer that is more than enough for what you need. also, what parts do you need, what country are you from, and when is the estimated purchase date?
christmas? thats a hot time for hardware, thats about the time for sandy bridge and bulldozer, aswell as the 6xxx series to be making its debut. And any build i give now will be practically obsolete by then.
any build we give him now isnt helpful for xmas. i dont mean this offensively to you, however people must understand the computer world is like the dog world, 1 day= 1 week. a LOT of things will change by then, anything we give you now might be replaced, new tech is out, prices drop, combos die, so its just not reasonable to ask, say more than 2 weeks before you are going to buy. i dont mean this offensively at ALL, however you must understand we cant really help much until a later date. although feel free to come back around xmas time, then id be happy to help.
