Your computer is better than mine. My computer is based on an Intel Pentium III 933 MHz with 512 MB SDRAM (Yes! SDRAM, not DDR-SDRAM). Even my graphics card is very outdated, nVIDIA GeForce4 MX4000 64 MB, but I think it still powerful to play "light" game. I bought it almost four years ago when I still on the second grade of Junior High. The price was around Rp 2,500,000 (US$220) at that time (with 14" CRT monitor bonus).

I spent nearly 10,000 HKD for my computer (IBM). I never play warcraft and don't know what it is. I only use my computer for Office, Excel and ppt. I like to play flash game which is very small. My CPU is 2 Duo, 2.00GHz, 1.96G memory. I have used it for nearly 2 years and it still works well. I think its configuration is good enough especially for my use. My previous one is Sumsung. I must say it is very bad. I have fixed it for nearly everything in 5 years and it have cost me 20,000 RMB. If it doesn't work next time, I will get rid of it. Highly recommend not buy Sumsung computer.

I don't pay more than $999 per computer, anything $500 and $999 is my choice, my current configuration is dual core 1,86ghz, 4Gb ram, 250 Gb HD, and Nvidia 9400 256 Mb, I bought two years ago. It is fast enought for my needs, and I don't need much horsepower, only web browsing, some office work and the hobby that is trying to trade some pocket change into more bucks.

Hi juzitou, this is a good questions. Maybe many people have more than one computer and often think about how to balance the price? how to use it to reach its most valuable. I have had three computer, the first was used when I am a college student, it had been give up now. For now, i have two, one is desktop computer and another is laptop, both two are not very expensive. But today, I just want to buy a new mini notebook for my wife, I also don't want to spend too much money since the computer is upgrading very quickly, I don't know when the next one will be considerd .

i have 1.6 Ghz. 256 Ram. 40 GB harddisk. I think i have intel P4. mine in only second hand cpu. i have already monitor so i dnd't but a monitor with it. only cpu and no other things. but this cpu has already cd drive and disk drive which i rarely use since disk drive today is outdated. it cost me $100. since it is just a second hand. actually it is less than $100. maybe about $90. i think buying a very good computer is very good investment. cause we can do so much with computer now with internet nowadays. but before i am not interest with buying and upgrading my computer. but now i just add bit by bit some extra accessories when i haev the money. like headset and speaker which i have now and usb flask drive. which are cheap i think. but i don't know what else to add to my computer. since i don't play games. mostly i use the computer for the internet. i don't or rarely save anything from the net.

I am using an assembled computer brand Qube but it is working good so far.I bought mine just last year February for Php 12,000.00. I can listen my favorite songs, my son can play games and most of all my computer provide answers to my queries. And most of all this assembled computer of mine help me to earn extra income that i really needed in times of crisis.

I paid probably 400 to 600 dollars ??? I don't remember actually...it's just a regular PC-really cheap. My last one was 700 something but it was stolen and my one before that was 850 and I broke it so I quit putting a lot of money into these things...I have had purchased four laptops in the past year and three cell phones all due to my own negligence and stupidity.
