Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a graduate physics student and I am looking to buy a new desktop. I was wondering if anyone had any opinion on a great desktop for a theoretical physicist.

I mostly use mathematica for symbolic computations but from time to time I use C or C++ to write numerical programs. Any opinions on specs or any products would be helpful.
