Guybrush, check out the Windows 7 tutorials in Help and Support. There are some videos and they are very helpful.

Wow! I'm thinking of a new computer in about 6 months and read part of this thread. There's a lot to consider here. I play darkgames myself.

I used to always get someone to build my computer, but I've since moved and don't know anyone where I am. Plus I'm retired so out of the loop.

Are there places online that are really reputable and trustworthy? Or how would I go about finding a company in my area that builds computers? I'm so lost at this.

Just saw you recommended eCollegePC. When I get ready I'll give them a call, but I'll be asking questions here. Sigh.

Jean, there are several on-line compapnies which build computers to your specifications. CyberPower is one and eCollegePC is another, plus there are others. eCollegePC is a small company near me in St. Louis. So far, they have been building up a very good reputation, particularly in customer service. You can read their policies on the website... eCollegePC

Thanks, Drac! I looked at their website and they do look interesting. I like the idea of having a small company build the pc, and when I get ready I'll definitely be talking to you all before I do anything.

I bought my pc in 2009, but it's running Windows XP which Microsoft isn't going to support anymore after next year, so it will be a good time to get a new one.

I'll need to find someone to help me hook it up. With my back these days I can't be getting up and down on the floor anymore.
