I know the answer for most of you obviously is going to be a custom PC. Let me just explain the situation. Before the summer's over, I plan on buying one or the other. I currently have a MacBook Pro, and I love it. But I want my own personal desktop. I was really leaning towards the 27" iMac that costs $1999 but let's face it...that's a lot of money. The display is absolutely beautiful though. I plan on dual booting both Windows 7 and Snow Leopard (possibly going to tri boot with a Linux build as well) with Windows 7 primarily being for games while Snow Leopard is basically for everything else. So basically a comp geared towards gaming would be good. I've never built a computer, I really don't know anything about hardware, and I don't really know anyone who does but I want to attempt to build it myself if it's not terribly difficult. I guess actually any Mac would do, I'm definitely not spending over $2000 on it though. So I guess what I'd like is your opinion on which to do. I guess for a custom PC (or hell even a non-custom PC, but I know customs are way better) my budget's up to $2000, but preferably I'd rather not spend more than $1500 (including a monitor, anywhere from 20"-27" please). I'd need a complete list of recommended parts (including monitors), and I can probably research what they do etc on my own (I have no idea why I have so little knowledge of hardware). Basically if it's a custom rig I just want the thing to be as beastly as possible. Oh and at least a 1TB HD. Summary: I tend to be a little wordy, so I like including summaries. Choose either iMac, Custom Rig, or PC. If it's a custom or PC, please include the price. If it's a custom rig, please include all the parts needed. I don't like polls. Thanks a ton.
