Selecting a Desktop Computer
Finding a desktop computer that meets your needs can be a challenge. Not because there’s a shortage of outstanding desktop PCs on the market. In fact, the opposite is true. There are lots of high quality, affordably priced personal computers on the market – including Acer, Asus, Cybertron, Dell, HP and Lenovo, to name a few – all of which you can find at TigerDirect.
Many first-time desktop computer buyers are swayed by ads promoting the latest PCs loaded with all the bells and whistles. But the first thing you need to consider is how your new computer will be used.
Are you looking for a personal computer that can serve as a media center for your music, photos and movies? An All-in-One computer your kids can use for schoolwork? Something you can use to run your home business? Or maybe you just need a spare computer in case your primary PC isn’t working.
Before you buy, make sure you’ve given some thought to what you’re asking of your new computer. That way, you’ll avoid purchasing a system that’s way too advanced for you or, conversely, one that’s ill-equipped to meet your demands.

Building A New Desktop
"After years of depending laptops I decided it was time to return to a desktop. I have not messed with the inside of a computer for over 15 years. Called TigerDirect, discussed my requirements and went with their recommendations. Everything showed up, spent about an hour and half installing everything, booted up, loaded Windows 7, no trouble, computer is working perfect. Could not be happier. Thanks so much TigerDirect, it was a pleasure doing business with you.“

Service and Price
"I'm a first time buyer and will definitely use TigerDirect again. I did not ask for next service but that's what I got. I ordered on Wednesday and it arrived on Thursday! The packaging was very secure. I bought the computer as a travel computer - sort of a cheap alternative to my main work laptop. The reconditioned computer from TIGERDIRECT exceeded my expectations.

"I purchased this desktop on sale for $539.99. It is a great workstation for my office. Out of the box it was ready for dual monitors and everything was seamless. This machine is fast, quiet, and had almost no bloatware! I cant believe I was able to get so much computer for $500. I especially love that it came loaded with windows 7, not 8. I would highly recommend this desktop to anyone looking for a low to mid level workstation.“

Good Computer for Money
"We needed a new desktop computer for home. The old Pentium based machine running Win XP had become a trial in patience to accomplish anything. So I searched out an off-lease desktop that had 4GB RAM minimum, a large HDD, and a speedy processor all at the lowest price. I ordered the HP DC7900 and could not be happier. I use the computer to surf the web, store photos, handle email, rip and play music, and perform simple Microsoft Office functions. It handles these chores admirably. The supplied keyboard and mouse were cheap, but I had a wireless setup left from my old PC so that wasn't an issue. Easily installed a mini PCI SATA card for an external backup hard drive. Everything works. Graphics and sound are fine. DVDROM rips full discs in mere minutes. Was packaged well and shipped quickly. Looked almost new. Highly recommended."
