Mid-Range Buyer’s Guide@ 2004/11/01
The goal of this guide is to outline an entire mid-range computer system for around $1500. This includes the internal hardware, input devices, monitor and speakers (everything but an OS). The components we have chosen for this system are what we consider to be great all-around products with the best bang for the buck. Depending on your individual needs, you may prefer to swap out different components in order to focus more on gaming, multimedia or multitasking. While we will recommend specific components throughout the article, we will also point out some options that you may want to consider as well.
