    New Computer

    So guys, I'm finally getting a new computer... The only thing is, I suck at picking out the kind I would really need.
    So, why not ask the most tech-savy gaming forum I know? :P

    Well, for one, I need a computer that's in the price range of 600 to 1000 dollars, if possible.
    Second, it needs a fan. This may sound like a given, but for some reason my current computer's fans do not work, so it literally overheats every hour or so.
    Thirdly, I want it to be able to play Portal and Minecraft, without lagging itself to eternal damnation. Playing flash games would be a bonus, but I guess a lot of computers can't handle them perfectly.
    It would also be helpful if it were able to be used for some graphic design, as I use Adobe Flash quite often.
    Lastly, it needs a webcam.

    ...So...Erm....any suggestions? ;-;

    If you're not tech savvy, go buy something from walmart/pcworld/whatever tech store you have where you live.

    Try not to go to PC world whatever you do, most of the staff don't know dogshit from computers and it's usually unbelievably overpriced.

    I was more asking which one to get, not where to go. >.<

    My friends said this one, would it work?

    ...And more!!

    If you're just going to play portal and minecraft, the standard gfx card on that machine should last you quite some time. It can also run modern high-end games/applications as well, with a considerable amount of speed.

    Alienware computers
    they are some of the fastest best computers out there. They are meant for gaming and are the speed of light. You can get a laptop of that brand for $1000 or under
