    Ok so here's the deal. I can't stand my sh1tty dell any more. I mean look at this: [​IMG]

    Anyway there's a guy that fixes are computers every once in a while and gets rid of viruses that i cant get rid of ( ex: antivirus 2009). When I was playing a pc game ( can't remember which) and he was there he said that it looked really like laggy. He said that if I wanted him to he could put in another video card. He also offered to build a new computer for me. So when I called him last night he told me that he wanted me to email him what I'm looking for. Like parts and specs. I honestly don't know that that means. So here's what I'm asking you. Would anybody be able to recomend parts or stuff that I should ask him to put in. I honestly have no idea what anything does for a computer other then ram. So if you have any ideas/recomendations please tell me. Also, please don't say it's easier to build yourself because I know it is I'm just too lazy. Thanks =]
    P.S if your wondering about the random colors I was just trying to make it a little easier to read so that all the black doesnt just run together.

    If if your PC games are laggy, you need a better video card that will fit in your machine

    Give me the Tag# of your PC and I'll find something for your. How much are you looking to spend?

    Antivirus 2009 can be removed by a free program called MalwareBytes, Google it

    go with a custom computer. Just make sure that dude doesn't really charge you too much to build it because I've seen alotta tech people like that try to jip people. As for a computer, you could get a good gaming computer for like 1.1 grand shipped.

    Look into these:
    Avira Anti-virus (It's free)
    WinPatrol (By Microsoft, it's free)
