Alright, I'm looking into buying a new desktop computer

I'm not very picky with what I want on it

Things that i have decided I want for it

I want to be able to have 40+ gigs of music without sacrificing speed/without the stupid thing often crashing

I use photoshop quite often, but most PCs I've seen work fine with PS

Good enough graphic card for Diablo 3 when it comes out...and maybe a little bit of Counter Strike

I would prefer a computer that isn't very large in size (maybe an all in one type of computer?)

That's about it.

I'd prefer not to buy parts, and make it/ have it build for me because I wanna get credit from a store and just buy it like that.

If people could recommend specific models that'd be great.

go to a local store that is not part of a chain or if it is go to one that only has a few stores in a region and tell them what you are looking for and they should be able to help you find the computer you are after

You can get a very decent barebones kit with quadcore CPU and a very decent videocard at tigerdirect.ca They ship everywhere in Canada.

What is your budget?

No PC is good for a decade...
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

the i7 will be hight tier for a longtime. After 8 cores computer actually lose effeciantcy because all the cores are fighting for RAM and what not.

Next step in the computer world will be using fibre optics in CPUs instead of silicon and that won't be for a while. i7 is the way to go if your looking for a great computer that will last a long time.

That's the most naive thing I've heard all week.

Remember back in the 70's? A certain Mr Bill Gates decided that 640kb of RAM was enough for anyone.

For what you request in the OP, anything you buy in your local PC store will be sufficient.


Don't buy a Mac.

that's what they said about dual and quad cores ... actually what you stated is actually what went wrong with the AMD phenom.

but! ... intel is already working on faster 8-core processors and in late 2009 they'll be releasing a reduced version of the nehalem architecture running at 32nm.

and then, they'll create a new architecture, making the i7 obsolete.

no processor, desktop, laptop, or anything will stay up to date for 10 years. that's just stupid.
