Looking to buy a new desktop Tags: Desktops Last response: May 26, 2013 10:39 AM in Opinions and Experiences Share Thinesbby May 22, 2013 6:03:51 AM I am looking to buy a new desktop. I'm planing to use it for casual gaming such as the sims 3 , video chatting and some light video and photo editing. What are some opinions on a desktop that would suit my needs for $1000 dollars or less ?
