I am in need of advice/help/insight when it comes to tower information. I recently had a laptop which crapped out on me in about 4 years and need to find a machine that can play movies, some graphic intensive games, and be overall good when it comes to GB space. I don't want to spend more than 1,000 if anyone can recommend me some good ideas or tips?

Tell me your budget, what kind of applications you run, preferences regarding size (if you want full towers, lan party size builds) etc. I'll give you some suggestions on the "best bang for your buck" parts with supporting information

Hello interwebs!... I don't want to spend more than 1,000 if anyone can recommend me some good ideas or tips?
Hi plenty of real sharp folks around here to help and advise you along the way should you decide to build your own rig. What is great about a community such as this ,is that there are many members here that can be real savvy about selecting the best hardware for the best price.As well provide some tips and guide you if needed along the way. You may find that is can be a lot easier than you think to build your own system and tweak it the way you like.One thing for sure by building your own rig is that you will really know a lot more about the hardware than ever and be able to maintain and upgrade the system later on as needed. plenty of options here and more than enough helpful advise.
It is simply up to you so.. Just ask away.
