I'd like a nice spec computer.
I hate sending things back by courier on the warranty, so I'd prefer an instore deal if possible, and I don't mind paying a little more for it there (but not too much, lol).
3.2Ghz if pos
About 160Gb HDD.
At least 512Mb RAM memory!!
A TV card and graphics card would be nice too.
DVD-Writer is essential, but these aren't too bad anyway.
[highlight]Alternative is to build my own, in which case I'd need prices for parts. I'm quite capable of doing this myself.[/highlight] ;)
