  1. hi all-
    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this.I am going to be buying a new computer before long and i cant decide between Dell or eMachines. I have owned both of them and have been very happy with them both. i have about $500 to spend on a new system. I like the eMachines because they use AMD 64bit processors, but none of their syatems come with monitors. Dells systems always come with monitors(their just basic but they're free) and i have heard that emachines quality has improved alot. But Dell has excellent support.

    please help
    thanks all

    i reall havent heard any good things about emachines but i know dells are pretty good but theyre kinda expensive, just build your own rig with that 500 bucks, whatever you build will be better than what you buy from those brands.

    So do you need a monitor, mouse, keyboard? Or just a standalone computer?

    If you can keep it at a standalone computer it can be fairly descent.

    Just tell me if you need any extra part and I will be glad to pick the parts out for you.

    Putting a computer together is fairly easy and you know where to always find help if you're unsure.

    eMachines really suck, so get a dell for sure.
