  1. Hi everyone, Im looking for a new computer because my old one is turning to C-R-A-P. So i was wondering what is a really good midrange pc maker? All i need is a tower, I have a old lcd 17" and some speakers and a keyboard and mouse. Also, the price range is 1000-1500. And it is pure gaming, i dont care about photo-editing and such just something that can play farcry, WoW, and HL2. Also if its somthing that can last a while, maybe 5 years, or is upgradable, it would be appreciated. SLI ready too plz. :)
