My last computer needed a new graphics card, so I asked my grandmother to take it into a shop to get a new one installed, but instead they stole my computer and gave her a used one that was way less valuable and told her that it was better. This computer also had only a trial version of windows 7, so I have no boot disc. Now the primary hard drive has crashed, and I am wondering if I should just get a new computer. My price range is $500 and I need a gaming computer. this one is barely adequate for what I need, but it does the job. Should I buy a new hard drive or the computer? And if a computer, what computer would you suggest? I can assemble a computer myself as well, so if you have in mind a bunch of compatible components, that's fine too. Thank you guys in advance.

This doesn't even need to be said, but If any reputable computer business takes your computer in for a repair, then they should give you the same computer back. If not, they are stealing or trying to get rid of some junk.
Just take what they gave you and bring it back and demand your computer then report them to the authorities and give them bad reviews on the internet.

I couldn't agree more with Spunk. They need to return your system in full, undamaged and unaltered.

If they do not, I recommend you get the police involved.

Well it has been 2 years, and we did try to get it back, but they already sold it... Anyway, I would like some advice on this current issue. What do you all recommend?

You can't be serious. You let them take your computer, give you a lesser one, and didn't find that to be weird whatsoever? I don't understand how that could ever make sense.

You never filed a police report for the crime? This is a crime that happened you know.

Chief, I guess the OP has moved on about his computer and so should we.

If you could link your TSF recommended Builds for them,. they will probably appreciate it.
