    RE: What PC do you reccommend?

    You need to make sure the image URL is valid, usually will look like http://something etc.

    Anyway, updated your OP with the specs as well for that model to make it easier for others to help you out.

    That model looks good IMO but not sure if it's the best deal price wise. Are there any games in particular you're wanting to play?

    RE: What PC do you reccommend?

    1st, yeah, I thought I was able to copy and paste. 2nd of all, thanks a lot for that. 3rd, games like gmod, team fortress, and some other games like cod. I know the first 2 games I listed don't need the best computer, but since I want to record with my friends, I will need to multitask. I will need to have skype open, my recording software, and some internet tabs open too. Right now, I am leaning toward maybe a laptop, just because it is portable. The only problem with getting a incredible computer, is the price, ,y budget is ramen noodles. (Or I could just say low)

    Another problem you will have with a laptop is that you won't be able to upgrade the video card in the future when you need something more powerful and to get something nice, it's probably going to be more like 5-star restaurant noodles.

    I think your best bet is to find a decent desktop that can play those games out of the box and upgrade to a better video card when you have the funds so you can multitask better.

    If you really wanted a laptop, then maybe get a good used model but kind of risky if it's gone through abuse already.

    This is only a few months old, and a lot of those parts are even cheaper now. Worth 10 minutes of someone else's research.
