I am so enmeshed in struggle instead of effort that it is ridiculous. I put obstacles in my way and get stuck up on them and use them as excuses.
For instance I have wanted to get a PC for a few years now. I really want to build a kick ass game machine. I sort of do not want to spend the money though because I have no idea where the finances are at this point, so I need to take over the finances first, except I need a the computer to take them over so I can use quicken and spreadsheets and plan things more efficiently..
See where this is going? So I decided to break down this one barrier. I am just going to get any old suck ass computer for now and once I have the financial picture clarified I can get another computer that is better. I am going to get one of the following two computers in the next few days.
Gateway DX4860-UB32P Desktop & 20" LED Monitor Package - $549
HP Pavilion p7-1174 Desktop & 20" LED Monitor Package - $679.
The HP has 8gb ram, while the Gateway has 6gb. Both have 1TB HD, Windows 7 64-Bit.
The HP is a AMD quad-core A8-3800, and the Gateway is an i3.
Both have onboard graphics cards which are semi-sucky. Not horrible but not great. The Gateway is Intel® HD Graphics 2000, and HP has AMD Radeon HD 6550D graphics.
I thought there was actually a DELL I was looking at with a better card. Now I am sorta leaning towards the HP possibly. Not sure. I am so not a hardware guy.
Anyway the bottom line. Not what I want. However I can buy either one from the poker winnings I had last time I played, a gift card I got for Christmas and just a couple bucks out of my main account. So I am going to stop fucking around and do it. If you have any preference on the setup or any experience with either type of desktop let me know. Peace.
