basically i'm stupid and remain unable to figure out what i need.

i need something capable of pretty good gaming, something not vista, and something capable of loading word.

id like to be able to load up multiple games, though not at once, as well as would like it to have plenty of room for anti virus software.

i'm asking for help and would like to try and figure out some of the jargon as well, if you could help me that would be great.

for the glory of doz

What's your budget?

What games do you plan on playing? What settings & resolution?

hand of doz, jump into the configurator, put a system together and post it along with what you are wanting to do with computer, game, video editing, etc, etc.  DS tech support or some of the members will review what you have and give advice.  This forum is all about helping each other.

That is one bad computer if it struggles with Star Craft.  I know that DS can help you if you give them some information.  silenceofthehams needs to help his buddy see the light.
