Hey guys I would like to get my wife a computer and also me a new computer since my computer is 2002 with windows xp also with only 2 gigs ram i mean like Dinosaur age lol . My wife would like to play computer with all of us she likes to play on mine already but hard to play on outdated stuff and have 2 people on 1 computer.

TBH the best place to buy parts from is www.newegg.com. They usually have the lowest deals, and the most selection. That being said, I don't know how much experience you have building your own PCs, so IBuyPower, where you select what you want in your pc and they build it for you, might be the right answer. All depends on your experience, but you can probably build a cheaper one on newegg.

http://pcpartpicker.com/ is where you can experiment and see where you can get it the cheapest. Really digging the people over at https://teksyndicate.com/ for builds, tips, and news although http://www.tomshardware.com/ is also worth seeing reviews from. For stores it's either Newegg, NCIX, and sometimes Amazon.

Last time i bought from NCIX i got charged an extra international fee because their processing was still in canada. Dunno if they fixed that yet. My order also caused a large hassle but that was possibly mostly the credit card companies fault.

I live in Canada and go through their .ca site and have had a good experience from the three times I've bought stuff. Don't remember where you live but that sucks if it's still going on.
