Thanks for all your help. One thing that concerns me is that a couple of are saying dell or gateway doesnít use quality parts. Does that just mean the motherboard? I am looking at my print out for a gateway 700xl and isnít a Intel Pentium 4 processor 3 GHz equal to any other Intel Pentium 4 processor 3 GHz? Do brands matter or just a parts specs?
Mainly I am looking to build a computer for video editing. That is the main reason I am looking at the high-end computers. I want a fast processor and big hard drive. I donít really care about games but I do use my current computer as my CD and DVD player. Itís hard trying to figure out what the perfect combination is for me. I guess Iíll research for a couple weeks till I feel comfortable with the ins and outs of computer lingo. Then Iíll be more ready to ask the right questions.
And thanks again to everyone that helped me out.
