    well unfortunately... the first question you have to ask your husband is what does he plan to do with the computer. If all he is going to do is business type work then you want to go with a computer that has more storage capacity  and not to worry about the graphic unless he is a graphic artist or video editor. Now if he plans on doing a little work and some game play or video watching then a minimum graphics card and processor speed should do the trick.... now if he plans on doing solely video watching and gaming on it then only the best graphics card and processor will do. Once he answers that then you know what to get him... the main things to think about in the computer world is hard drive space for storage, video graphics card speed for the quality of picture and video on the computer, and processor speed for how fast the computer can run with those basics you can pick a great computer for your husband
