Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Question I'm in need of a new computer......

I'm looking for recommendations.

I don't 'game' but, I would like to watch videos without having to wait for buffering and for some sites to load.

I currently have a HP Pavilion p2 Series with Windows 7 OS with Comcast Cable Internet.

I would also like a Printer, Scanner, Copier for sh*t I may need to print.

I also don't want/need a top of the line computer.

What would you recommend?

Thanks.

I had HP . It blew up...fried.....

I have a Dell now, with the digital hard drive (what ever its called, solid state drive?)No moving parts.... It does not heat up or get hot, stays cool

Been working great for at least 5 year

Just close your eyes and pick one... they are all the same

I recently bought a Brothers lazer printer, black only. For my business , works great , Doesnt use those expensive rip off ink carts that dont last

I got one from Cybertron. It is a gaming computer, but I don't play games on it.

Gamers need high performance and lots of cooling on their machines. Because I don't have air conditioning, it gets pretty warm in my house in the summer time. Therefore, I wanted a machine that could keep a little cooler. Besides, it also has some pretty cool lighting effects.

Build your own. Not necessarily cheaper, but you can get what you want and not what they want to give you...

I've done that for years. You can customize it the way you want it.

Where would be a good place to start if a person wanted to explore that option?

Exactly. See what they have to offer, then check Amazon and Ebay for better prices. I check Newegg first, as Tigerdirect caters to business customers, also.

I just rebuilt a computer, found a new motherboard, processor and memory on Newegg, then sourced most parts from other sources. I used my old drives, though and case, though.

I buy most of my assembly/replacement parts from Newegg. If I need something quick such as ram or a power supply I buy at the local Bestbuy.

They (Newegg) do have about the best selection and they're good at matching components, also. I don't have a Best Buy arround here, so I have no experience with them. Their online catalogue is fairly impressive, though.

I have bought about 10 pcs Over the last 5 years for the shop.

I watch amazon and eBay. We have mostly hP but have a couple Lenovo PCs that I like allot. Bit of them were refurbs. I get the 3.0 or higher processors and then upgrade the RAM to at least 12-16megs and all now run the SSD for faster indexing.

Being you will be streaming I would look for a good dedicated graphics card either included or upgrade to it. That helps allot for the video editing and other graphics I do

You could start with a cheap processor like this one: https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007...69%20601321069

It can only get worse from there!
