  2. Thats A Decent Suggestion, Mind You Though That CPU Dosent Hafta Be AMD, But Yes It Prefered, But I Would Also Prefer To Buy Used.

    Still Though An Excellent Suggestion, Thank You, Any More?
  3. To be honest, that HP seems to be by far the best thing you can get for ~350$. Especially if you are competent enough to remove some bloatware. This amazon link has a refurb for 335$
