Don't be an asswipe to people that are trying to help you, especially when it's clear that the people you're asking know more about the subject. Hydra and Johan and even myself know quite a bit about computer setups. Johan and Hydra, probably a little bit more than me, even. I'd take their advice. Otherwise, if you're going to insult them for not being able to decipher the very vague information you gave us, you can go to a computer store and have them help you and sell you something.

My main strength is enlisting various online resources to my aid. I've already linked a lot of them.That said, I tried to educate and also I tried to throw stuff out there to in the hopes of getting some sort of feedback that would aid in narrowing down the search. Neither met with much success. Instead, I got a condescending "I've been totally clear. Your mind just isn't used to operating that way", which probably isn't the best attitude to have when you're enlisting other people's help.GD is probably going to end up with a computer to match the antique CRT and yellowy LCD screen, which is such a shame.
