we need to know the following
what Dell did you buy
what is your monitor's native resolution,or at least its screen size
do you plan to watch video, play old games, the latest games, etc.,
and your budget
my monitor is a dell E207WFP. it's the 20"er.
the cpu is the i7-920 processor.
i don't do anything special in particular with my computer. i would simply prefer that it didn't cough whenever i go to full screen with my media center. and to bring up my overall computer rating. i want something snappier.
as for my budget, things are pretty tight here. i'm a single man with a single income trying to pay off a huge hospital bill. i had a surgery with no insurance. but i am fine. just poor.
