    Need a new PC to replace my old one.

    Hey guys, this was my old PC: HP Envy 700 Desktop PC Intel Core i5 3GHz 12GB RAM 1TB HD DVDRW WiFi Win 10 Pro | eBay

    I've had her since about I was in 6th grade. Inevitably, it has given me many troubles. I am sick of trying to repair it and will be getting rid of it eventually.

    With that being said, I'm on the lookout for a new pc. However, I'm on a very limited budget. I'm a college student. Here are two pc's I've looked at thus far and it's safe to say my budget is DEFINITELY under $500.

    10-core 240GB-2TB SSD Gaming Computer Desktop PC Tower Quad Core 16GB 3.8GHz | eBay

    10-Core Gaming Computer Desktop PC Tower 2 TB Quad 8GB R7 Graphic CUSTOM BUILT | eBay

    Building one myself is ALMOST out of the picture. College keeps me busy but if someone can convince me to build one myself I may look into it.

    Need a new PC to replace my old one.

    What are you going to use it for?
    Any gaming is out of the question with either of those machines.
    You might want a laptop instead with a reasonable cpu and enough ram to suit you.
    An SSD is a MUST these days, if the pc you’re looking to get doesn’t have an ssd, don’t even bother

    - Daily use, I want to be able to play OSRS while using skype and having multiple google chrome tabs open. I want to be able to watch movies without problems.
    - Understood. I actually want to create one myself and build it, can you help with that?
    - Understood.

    Are you from the US?
    Create a laptop or create a pc?
    For laptops, find anything with an SSD and a i5-7xxx cpu and you should be golden. For a pc it's a bit trickier and your budget might not suffice for a modern pc

    could just upgrade the gpu and throw a 1tb ssd in there, that i5 is good for another few years, and during those few years pc parts will continue lowering

    If it’s shot just get a 7200 rpm 2tb or a 512/1tb ssd theyre both fairly cheap right now as storage space is lowering.

    Sorry for using up everyone's time but this is what I did.
    Went and bought myself a new HDD and bam the PC is brand as new (hopefully). Thanks, everyone!
