So, I decided that I want to sell my Mac to switch to a PC. I'm not sure whether I should build a computer or not but I'm kinda lazy. So I was wondering if you guys knew a good computer I could get within $500-$599. Also, I live in Canada so..........

This topic can be used for anyone planning on getting a new computer and needing advice or whatever.

hmm...it looks pretty good...i'm not a huge fan of his core...
and i don't know if it bothers you but it might have a terrible graphics card..
so if you're a gamer this should matter you if not...then this computer is not half-bad

Not really getting this for gaming, but do you think I could upgrade the graphics card if I really wanted to?

yeah you can always do that.
well if you're not into gaming and just need a computer that can handle normal things..
i'm guessing this computer is pretty good.
i just think you should look for an intel core computer, like i5 or i7, even i3 will be enough.

I was hoping I would find an Intel Core instead, but I need something like this computer with Intel Core ._.

What if I were to replace the processor?

Also, I know this seems kind of dumb, but what if I replaced it with another AMD processor that was better? Cause I don't really want to spend so much money.

that computer actually seems pretty good.
i think when a computer has 4 cores it's pretty good.
and 3.1 ghz are not bad as well.

There is nothing wrong with the performance on an AMD processor. Sure, they're not quite up to par to Intel but if you're on a tight budget then I suggest AMD because they are still quite good.

I also suggest you build your computer but that is dependent on your budget. With $500 - $599 then yeah it'd probably be better to go ahead and just buy a pre-built PC. I suggest if you're gonna order it online then you must absolutely use Newegg . They have the best online service for when it comes to buying anything computer related.

And I suggest this computer. It's quite affordable and comes equipped with a wi-fi card. It also gives you an extra $100 dollars to upgrade the graphics card or just buy something else if you wish to do so.

I'm just gonna buy this computer. As long as I can run Ableton, Photoshop and Flash, then I'm fine.

yes they are
AMD uses a different method for measuring hertz, which ends up with a lower number than intel, but just the same or better performance.

Lolno
He's going to need a decent amount of RAM (4GBs is fine), but you need more than that. You're going to need a good processor, sound card (especially for Ableton), and even a decent graphics card to run programs fine.

That budget is too low if you're wanting good standards...

No it's not
$500 is a reasonable amount for a decent non-gaming computer
