Looking for a new PC

Question: Looking for a new PC

This is my current laptop that I've had sense about 2007 http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2370421,00.asp?tab=Specs

And I have a friend who is selling this for $750 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-envy...lver/3487016.p?id=1219581293483&skuId=3487016
I have some people saying that it's a worth it upgrade from what I have but then others are saying I could just buy a desktop for about the same price that's better

I'm just looking for something that can handle newer games / programs such as photoshop and sony vegas cause my current laptop is slowly dieing off

I'm looking to spend between 800-1000 that's with the PC/monitor etc

If anyone could help me out with this it would be much appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Looking for a new PC

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Looking for a new PC

I'd recommend taking a look at Entry-Level rig that you can find on Techspot's PC Buying Guide. It's right around your price range and can satisfy your requirements with little modification. For instance, If you do not need a keyboard,speakers and the extra storage, you could use the savings to grab an I5 or i7 for your CPU. Alternatively, you could even use the savings to grab a beefier GPU. Take a look and post your thoughts. I'm sure myself or others from the community will be glad to help you refine your ideas and come up with a definitive plan moving forward.
