Best place to buy a computer if you can't build yourself?

#1Kurodo AkabanePosted 8/27/2013 12:12:34 PM
I was recommended Micro Center by someone. I want to spend good money on something good, but I hated Windows 8 and places like Best Buy have almost all their good computers with Windows 8 now.

Should I just suck it up and go for 8 or should I try to find a PC with Windows 7? Not really a big gaming PC, but good enough to play some games, while mainly being used for multimedia and other tasks.

thanks

Why can't you build it yourself?

Not savvy enough and can't afford to have anything go wrong when building.

Except it is possible to permanently damage hardware by handling/installing incorrectly. I agree that it's not that hard, but I don't like when people try to make it sound like it takes no effort. There are plenty of people who have built multiple PC's and still manage to screw up a build.

100% agree. ecollegepc.com is the way to go if you don't want to build it yourself, however, they will charge ~$200 just for assembly.

Make Yourself
If I hadn't assembled myself, I'd have fallen apart by now.
