I just cleaned my dads AIO last week and I wanted to throw it out in the street. Let us know what you want to do.......you can build a really nice PC for less than $1300 for sure!

sorry, i don't mean to butt in, but i just saw this thread and had to put my 2 cents in (again sorry LoL). i've come across a few videos on youtube by duncan33303 and i actually quite like them! he's done several budget gaming builds with some really great components. if your budget is 1300$$ for a new desktop and you mostly do gaming...i highly recommend building any one of these or taking your favorite and adapting it to you. you will be sooo much happier building your own rig, than buying a pre-build system.

i helped my dad purchase a new computer from best buy (finally!) and i ended up getting him a really good pre-built one for just shy of 1k$. but we could have saved quite a bit more if i'd built one for him. i just wanted to get him something simple that would last him a few years till the next upgrade LoL.

i'd recommend at least considering this: Build a Gaming PC for $1000 - November 2012 - YouTube

its a youtube video by the guy i mentioned earlier. a pretty banging build for a roughly 1k$ budget. me personally, i'd get at least a 700watt modular power supply and a full tower case, but like i said, check it out and modify it to your needs/desires/plans for the future. <<-- because computer parts and technology will only continue to get better, so leave room for upgrade.

also, i completely agree with the other guys about those "all-in-one" computers. they look like a pain to upgrade/clean and they don't look like they'd be able to keep cool very well behind a warm monitor screen. in my opinion, thats the beauty of a desktop. you have airflow, you have space for expansion, you have space for cleaning.

You just need to go to the manufacturers website of your pc and see what the options for a cpu upgade are.

Then go on ebay to find it.
