I need some advice.

Hello guys,

I am looking for a 2nd hand pc tower just as a backup in my main one fails at any time. I will only be using it for checking these forums and email. Any advice will be helpful. Also I am checking the local paper but nothing so far.

Around here I check local computer builders. Small computer builders businesses get trade ins at times.

Get on Ebay!!!!!!

There are plenty of pre built systems (maybe quite old) that are cheap as chips.

Check around local colleges, they generally sell off old towers for cheap when they upgrade their systems.
