Best Desktop Computers Under 500

I was recently in the market for a new desktop computer and the only thing I knew was this: I didn't want to spend more than $500! These days, all the major electronics are so cheap (remember when computer and TVs were several thousand dollar?), so I knew I could get a great desktop computer for under $500.

Just like you might expect, I have found in my experience that you don't have to spend a lot of money on a desktop in order to get great performance out of one. Now if you are an avid gamer, then it's a whole different story, but for the everyday user, these computers will definitely suit your needs.

Please share your experience with desktop computers and which ones you like best in the comment section near the end of this page.
