New Desktop Tower

I'm in need of a new desktop computer tower. I have a 20" Samsung monitor so I only need the tower. My current HP is about 7 years old and the display driver keeps crashing, even when uninstalling and installing again, it's running slow, and crashes multiple browsers on a consistent basis.

The max I want to spend is $500. I don't play games on it but I do stream sports. Other than that, I don't use it much for anything but browsing the net.

I'm not a tech guy so any help would be appreciated in pointing me to something that will perform well without breaking the bank.

I don't think you have to be tech savvy to do it. With a motherboard/CPU combo from newegg, you can get something already assembled and you just put a few cables in here and there. And they can only go in one place.

It's probably not a good sign that I can't find what you are talking about there.

Is it a page like this?

Close, but you can also just get the MoBo and CPU in combo, then buy all those other things separately so you can go cheaper or splurging depending on the component. Or if you already have a DVD/BR writer or power supply that is adequate for your needs.

The big thing to be careful on is making absolutely sure the power supply COMPLETELY matches the MOBO. My last MOBO/CPU rebuild I had a great power supply, but it had one ONE!! pin that was different from the new standard, so I ended up having to add a new PS [not as good as the 'old' one] to the purchase.

When buying any combo or building from parts, the one thing you have to account for before anything else is whether or not you have a Windows license you can use.

A new Windows license is anywhere from $100 to $175.

Building your own tower is pretty simple, but there are some subtle nuances that you need to be careful with. I've burned up enough MoBo's to know that they can indeed get ****ed up if you don't do everything right.

Computers aren't hard to assemble....at all. But if you are planning on building one, you need to take your time, watch some videos on youtube and be very, very thorough, and make sure that everything you buy is compatible with each other. Checkout http://pcpartpicker.com/

not unless you want to be back in this thread in 6 month wondering why your PC is still slow as shit.

Especially when that DIY combo will cost 100 bucks more and stretch you out for a much longer time.
