PRO TIP: If you're thinking of maybe getting a new computer consider building it yourself. You'll save money unless you're just going to get some low-mid range computer from Dell or another big company like that. But when it comes to high performance and reliability, you cant beat a computer with hand picked parts that you built yourself, based on your own research. If you have absolutely no clue about anything computer related then maybe you should just stay away, but if you're really dedicated you can find all the info you need online.
