Help finding a new computer tower for trading

Hello all,

My comp is in the process of crashing out on me and I'm currently trying to find a new computer tower to replace it. I'm not very tech savvy so I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for, and more importantly, where to find it/get a good deal online. I don't need anything that is completely decked across all specs and is an "absolute beast of a machine." I'm really only in the market for something that has good memory, good speed, and the ability to support at least dual DVI monitors. I have found a few places online but they all seem to charge what appears to be astronomical prices (> 1200 and up to 3000). I assumed that something like this should be achievable at or around 600-900 at least, but I simply do not know. Anyone have any good suggestions here? I truly appreciate it...

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas,

- Jon

We just use the usual Dell machines. Why not Dell?
