Ive had the same Pentium 4 desktop for about 6 years now, believe it or not...which has been mostly good. It's been a big slow lately, so I'm thinking of getting something else. I'm kind of looking at this refurbished system (Gateway FX6800-01E ), mostly because of the Core i7 and Radeon HD 4850, and the price. I kind of think that for that set-up, there's no way I'm getting a price close to that. Also, even though I'm pretty sure I could probably build a system, I don't think I want to go that route this time. What do you guys think?

Thanks.

Get real - Macs suck.

Yeah, maybe - To be honest, I'm actually pretty partial to Windows XP. I've never really had any problems with it.

Get windows 7. It has an XP mode.

I've been using macs a while, probably longer than most mac users on here, and I say go with windows 7.

I don't think I've ever used it. I don't even know how even if i wanted to, but it's there. Well except for in the lowest package of windows 7 (windows 7 home?).

Yeah but the Intel Core i7 is the top processor out there right now. Thanks for your answer, though.

Get a mac or build your own windows based pc.

I recommend a Mac though, went from Windows to Mac a few years ago after using nothing but Windows and will never go back. Plus i run windows xp on my mac through boot camp if i ever really need to do something on windows that i can't in mac osx
