Can you help me replace my ancient computer?
All right, confession time. My computer is ten years old... yes, you read that right. Bought back when Windows XP was still young -- it was a simpler time, then... But anyway, you didn't come here for its life story. Suffice it to say that after this much time, it really needs replacing.
I know there are other questions out there about replacing computers, but I have to tell you, I feel like a tech idiot and don't quite understand all the things people say in them. If anyone could help me figure out what I need in a new computer, or if you know of any great deals, please let me know. I may have to ask more questions to figure out what you're talking about, but I'll try not to annoy anyone to death.
I'm looking for a computer for playing games, and for general web and media purposes. I think I want a desktop, but I could be wrong - what's your opinion? Price is not a big issue - ten years of not buying a computer has left me with a decent amount, so I'm not too constrained by that.
