That is WAY too vague a question. What are you going to do at 1920 x 1080? Play games? Play DVDs? Nothing but use the internet and some Office stuff?

What are you going to be doing with it and what is your max budget?

Do you have any parts ? You already have a 1920 x 1080 monitor or need one? Mouse and keyboard and speakers?

Ok a few choices here.

This has a decent CPU, 4GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, a DVD burner and a seperate graphics card. Nothing game worthy but it's more powerful than just having integrated graphics. Do you like the case though?

This one is more traditional. Better CPU, better RAM and a bigger hard drive but it has integrated graphics. Plenty for internet and watching DVDs.

A little more money but still under your $800 limit. The most powerful CPU of the bunch and more memory ( 8GB ) Still not a gaming worthy graphics card but a good one for HD video. The most futureproof of the bunch.

Just some ideas from looking at newegg. For their prices they are all good deal. Let me know if you want more options and what you like/dislike about what I picked. All have 1 year warrantys.

thanks for some of the options! i think the first one and the third one looks a bit irregular. i want to get a more traditional looking desktop. the second seems to look better but is a integrated graphic card bad for hd movies/videos?

i was just looking at some desktop on hp.com


can you tell me if these are any good?

@refillable Read the post, he does not game at all.

I would start with this one.

Use the i5 2400, the free upgrade to 6GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, the 1GB HD6450 graphics , add the Blu Ray player drive if you want one, and the software is up to you.

That would make a great HD capable, pretty nice spec computer.
