Wondering which desktop computer to buy can seem quite daunting if you don’t know much about computers. Even if you do know quite a lot, they’re always changing rapidly, so it’s good to know what the market currently has in store for you.

Try to choose a desktop computer that suits your needs while remaining affordable. Many people try to buy machines that are out of their price range with lots of extra features that they don’t need or use. Look at the features to make sure you need them before buying.

If you want to save money, look into buying a refurbished model. These computers are ones that have been fixed at the factory and are often offered at a steep discount. These are usually offered by the computer brands on their own websites, so take a look before you buy a new computer.

Keep in mind that you can always add components later. If you happen to be looking at a good deal, remember that you can always add things later. You can always buy more memory, for example or a printer, as example a poster printer. You can save money if you buy a bare bones computer and only buy what you need.

If you need a more powerful computer, look in areas listed as “gaming” or “entertainment” computers. These will have more RAM and faster processors which can handle these tasks. If you buy a computer listed as an “everyday” machine, you’ll find that it just doesn’t live up to your needs.

Examples of fast processor are the new Core i5 and Core i7 processors, all of which can be found in new desktops. Be sure to look for these two processors or their equivalents.

Consider what type of media you’ll want to play on your desktop computer. Do you have need of a Blu-ray player? Or is a DVD enough? Or maybe you tend to stream everything and have no need of any sort of optical drive. These will all factor in on the make you get and the price.

If you plan on storing a lot of music or videos, make sure you get a hard drive that will cover your needs. In general, the more hard drive space that you can get, the better off you are. That is, unless you only write emails and surf the web on your desktop.

    I like barebones computers, always have. I enjoy building my own (finances permitting…), and barebones is an interesting approach to that.

    Come to think of it, I could use a new rig soon…time to hit up the web for some deals!

    Good read, nice summary of desktops overall.

    Computers are such handy and valuable equipment nowadays. I could hardly imagine a day without using my laptop or PC. And I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way. And because they play such important functions in our every day life, it only makes sense that we invest in quality units and, at the same time, choose ones that are reasonably and affordably-priced. Thanks for sharing tips on how we can have good quality monitors without spending a fortune.
