    getting new computer


    My sister needs a new computer because hers is going bad (one of the pins on the processor fan has been out for a while, vibrating the entire computer to death) so im gonna sell her mine. Im curious if anyone wants ta suggest something they like around 1000 +/- 400 $ or so. Looking for intel, sata, and linux compatability more than anything. thanks

    amd realy offeres a better product nowadays since they dindt spend forever focused on clock speeds. plus amd is now a better overclocker since intel has to come with some high end fan just to keep cool. amd supports 64bit proccessing beter than intel and amd is usualy cheaper.
