    I urgently need to purchase a new desktop and on very low budget (windows 7 premium is required). Can you guys please let me know if the below is a good deal from Dell? Does it look like everything I could possibly need has been included, hope the below mentioned tower is not missing anything that could be important that I may have overlooked? Your input would be greatly appreciated, thanks:

    It looks OK for the price. The Inspiron desktops from Dell aren't exactly inspiring in design, they have a "plastic" feel, but they work.

    What type of things will the desktop be doing?
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    This desktop will just be replacing my old desktop (that I've had for approx 5 yrs now with only 2 gigs of ram). It's super slow, freezes all the time with all sorts of other problems. I would just rather replace it with fresh/upgraded system.

    I will be running my home office with it basically (excel, quick books, photoshop etc on it), just want to be sure I didn't leave anything out that I might have overlooked? Thanks!

    Here are the specs of my old desktop. Would you say the new desktop is MUCH more powerful?

    That'll probably serve you well for a few years, but you might be surprised what you get from a 64bit OS, some memory and a reinstall. At about a third of the price

    Depends a little on the size of those spread sheets and usage of photoshop, but if it's really casual use there's life in what you have yet and you can wait until budget is less of a factor for an upgrade.

    I was going to reformat my current PC and then add more ram to it... but there is odd problem happening with it constantly which is forcing me to do system rollbacks almost every single week. Something seems corrupt and the ONLY thing that ever fixes it is a system roll back.

    What "extra" would you add to the new computer's specs to beef it up? A little embarrassed here, I should know all this by now, but I'm honestly not a very techie person and swamped busy with so many other things to focus on.

    Thanks for advice!
