One of my friends is looking for a new computer and monitor, and his budget is $850. And since the majority of my knowledge lies in the area of high quality expensive parts, I dont know much about whats good for a really low price. The computer will have to be prebuilt. The monitor doesnt have to be included with the desktop, but it will still have to be added in there. Also, make sure if you find a site with something on there that it ships to canada. Ex: Newegg.ca instead of newegg.com or amazon.ca instead of amazon.com. Those are usually the most popular sites. Anyways, to the purposes. To hold music software, video software, audio editing software, all my songs (compositions), music for wmp, surfing web, screen recorders, audio recorders, word programs. So preferably a bigger hard drive, 500GB-1TB. Early responses would be appreciated. Thanks!
HP Pavilion p7-1070t Intel Core i3 2100 3.1GHz 4GB 1TB w/ nVidia GeForce GT420 2GB, currently at $200, the auction will close between $300 and $400, but you are on your own after a short support period.
You might do much better waiting for BLACK FRIDAY sales and getting a laptop or server from newegg or a big bix store.
