    Just go to your local computer store, most small places custom build computers, but you have to know what you want to put in it.

    I custom built my comp around 2 years ago.

    I have a Thermaltake Xaser III Case (Black)
    Athlon XP 2.4GHz
    1GB RAM
    128 MB ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
    120 GB HD
    DVD Burner
    9 Case Fans
    Blue Cathod Light
    Plexiglass side panel

    I had to cut costs somewhere so I am still using my old monitor from my first ever system. Its a 17 inch monitor but it still works fine so why replace it I guess.

    Mines a Toshiba M200 (tablet pc)

    1.5 GHz Centrino package
    1 GB of DDR Ram (upgraded from 512)
    60 GB hard drive (down to 800 MB)
    Built-in 802.11G

    Halo plays without lag, and it's set to medium, so, not bad. I also use a Logitech Trackball mouse (the side-mounted kind), and it works wonders with Halo!

    I built mine myself, and with a little help from my dad three years ago. I was only 12.

    Pentium 4 1.5GHZ, 400 MHZ FSB
    120 GB Hard Drive, and a 40 GB one
    GeForce 4 Ti4600 128 MB Video Card
    768 MB of RDRAM
    SoundBlaster Audigy 2
    Sony DVD Burner
    Sony DVD Reader
    17 inch CRT Monitor
    Logitech Z-640 5.1 Speakers

    I paid for it with the money I got from good grades. I got 300 dollars in 6th grade for getting this Presidential award for academics or something. The I got 300 more dollars in 8th grade for making Laurel Honor Society, which was like you had to get a 3.5 GPA average. And my parents paid for the rest.

    My Dad's computer kicks ass though.

    Two Intel Xeon 2.4 GHZ Processors, 400 MHZ FSB
    Two 74 GB 10,000 RPM Hard Drives
    250 GB SATA Hard Drive
    1.5 GB of RDRAM
    ATI FireGL 128 MB Video Card
    SoundBlaster Live
    21 inch Sony CRT Monitor
    19 inch Sony LCD Monitor
    Plextor DVD Burner
    Sony DVD Reader

    i feel ashamed of my computer

    here goes.

    0.9Ghz AMD Athlon (pitiful)
    256MB of RAM
    17" CRT screen
    Nvidia 5200FX
    CDRW (not even a DVD RW )
    And 40Gig Hard Drive.

    My computer struggles playing the sims (i'm talking about the first one ), it can't even surf the net without any problems...

    Exceuse me while i put a bag over my head.

    And to think this game would've been uber poweful back in the day

    Steroyd How can your computer stuggle with 256 MB of RAM when I have 32 MB od RAM and the Sims lags a little? I'm going to put 256 MB of SDRAM in my computer in 1 hour and your saying 256 MB will still lag?

    On the bright side for you your computer is better then mine except I have a DVD burner.

    O.K i exaggerated a little, it chuggs along when the smallest of things happens though, but i think it depends on the OS you use.

    I had a Windows ME, and the first sims ran O.K but the framerate dropped every now and then (yeah i know...weird).

    But when i upgraded to Windows XP...BANG, computer crashed everytime i tried to load it, and when it did work it'd only work for a while before my computer starts draggings it's heels.

    Don't get me started on the sims 2
    two words..."barely playable" it'd take 10-30 minutes just to rotate the camera!!

    That's what I thought Steroyd. I see a big improvement in speed but since my computer only see's 128 MB that means it's faster. I need help with that problem.

    Damn i just customized their top model with nearly maxed out features for around $1800...HP has some sweet prices, and even better FREE Upgrades.


    EDIT- Scratch that made it even better for 1900

    Realtek Integrated Audio 7.1
    8-n-1 Media Reader

    Some of you may remember I bought that video card recently when I found out this crap mobo has no AGP slots. I'm living off that till Christmas break when I go to NY and buy a new mobo and video card (preferably a Gigabyte mobo and a Sapphire X800). Haven't played much PC games on it, but I did finish playing Warhammer 40k: DoW on it awhile back. I'm saving up some cash until then and so far I got $33 US dollars... Pathetic, I know, but my birthday is coming up in November and I'm hoping for some cash then. If all else fails, I get it all for Christmas.
