Advice/recommendations on buying a new computer
« on: July 01, 2018, 04:20:18 AM »
I’m looking to buy a new computer but I don’t know much about them. I need a computer that I can write papers on for school, but I also want one that I can play the Sims 3 on. I’m also hoping to have this computer for a while. My budget is up to $1000. Any recomentations and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

With that big of a budget, you might try having a look over at

They have desktops and laptops that you can customize for right around $1000.

RyZen 1700X Desktop = $959.

- CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4GHz
- RAM / System Memory:  8GB
- Video Card: AMD Radeon RX 560 2GB GDDR5
- 1 TB Hard Drive

-- May need a better power supply if you want to upgrade the graphics card later on.


Tracer II 15 Laptop = $849.

- CPU: Intel® Core™ Processor i7-7700HQ 2.8GHz
- RAM / System Memory: 8GB
- Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
- M.2 SSD: 250GB  (Hard Drive)

-- Would recommend to add 1 TB "regular" hard drive or another 250 GB to 500GB SSD to help with games other data storage.
