Where would i find myself a desktop pc with vista. Not a ****ty one because i want to run photoshop and flash smoothly, but with nothing with it, like no monitor, keyboard etc? A brand new one though. for around 150-200? I've seen them go for that price before but the ones i can find are just XP.
cheers

Try at a local pc store? Or on ebay? Sorry are you seriously asking us where to buy a PC from?

I could point out all the things wrong with this but I'm too busy spreading butter on my toast.

Geeks.com has some good deals. And of course there's eBay...

ASUS usually makes good computers. Make sure you get one with a good CPU (Dual core, and 2.6GHZ at the very least.) And a god GPU (Graphics card) I recommend ATI.

If you are going to try and buy a new computer, you should save up your money and get something worthwhile.

Spending that little amount of money on a computer, if you can even find a new one for that price, would end up being a disaster.

Vista?

Good one.


Signature? What signature? Also, any games I plan to make may or may not become vaporware. I'm not good with organizing my life...

I have used both, and W7 gave me lots of issues after the upgrade.

Also, lol @ mac.

Vista=OS

Your post makes no sense.

Anyway, Lenovo's are what you want to get.

Well... 2gb of ram is nothing, my laptop has a very similar processor, and runs photoshop fine, but It deso have 4gb of ram, and an ati radeon. You are likely to get very shoody components for the price, the hard drive will be of a very low quality, as wil the ram etc. and the 64bit windows 7 is the majority of the asking price.

I wouldn't.

Everything is extremely vague "2GB of RAM", "80 or 160GB HDD", etc. No proper detail is offered about these systems. No doubt they are running pirated copies of Windows and Office for that price, too.

Christmas is just around the corner, ask your parents to get you nice PC from Currys or something. Don't get it from eBay whatever you do.
