    Hey guys, my current computer is absolutely horrible, it's slow, lags alot and it's just bad. So I decided it's time for a new one, but I need some advice on what to get.

    I've pretty much decided that I want a desktop, I'd like if it was under $700 and I'd prefer to purchase it at a store (wal-mart futureshop bestbuy ect.)

    I'd be using this as an all around computer, some music playing, web browsing, social networking, and a bit of gaming. It doesn't have to be amazing for gaming, but I'd like if it could run Minecraft, some flash games and possibly portal 2 when it comes out (unless it's released on ps3)

    I really don't know what specs all of this would require so I'd like some input from you guys.

    BTW: I've been looking at http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/prod...spx?path=71486e47a41df1ee5078fa0882d7a1e6en02 and http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/prod...spx?path=241af8777f53afd8e8c6c8465b54d4d8en02 but I'm not 100% sure.

    I think that a custom built computer would be cheaper

    Yeah but to do that I'd pretty much have to order everything online which isn't good

    Well portal 2 is coming to the PS3 and Xbo 360, you can put your mind to ease about that ;D
