I've been told it would be cheaper to just buy another tower and have my data, graphics card transferred to my new desktop because i'm keep paying out money on this computer sometimes $100 $200 and $300 to replace something when i have applications open my cpu usage is at 100% i have a intel core 2 duo e7400 2.8ghz processor i need a desktop with a quad core whether it's intel or amd

In the order of my personal preference for a pre-built
1) Cyberpower PC
2) IBuyPower
3) Asus
4) Lenovo
5) HP

Both CyberpowerPC and IBuyPower offer custom builds at their website (along with various stock models sold through stores).

I will soapbox here about the possibility of building your own, it isn't too difficult and, judging by your repair bills, will save you quite a bit in the long run - this video shows what is involved if you're interested

Also, what is your intended usage for the computer? It will help in order to decide a specific model
Enjoy

Is there any chance your system needs cleaning of resource wasting crap, junk files, and registry errors? Give CCleaner a try: http://www.piriform.com/CCLEANER
Do the Clean and Registry both. You may have to run it more than once untill it comes up clean. Then defrag.

And check your system config file (type msconfig in Start/Search) for an excessive amount start up programs running in the background. Look under the 'start up' tab. For comparison, most folks with clean systems have less than a half dozen items checked. If you have a lot, go to: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_search.php to see what can safely be unchecked.
