    Your tower is your PC, it is the computer. You have a tower (the computer), you have a keyboard, a mouse and a monitor.

    The PC screen is the monitor, not the computer. Go to a computer store, best buy or something and have them show you what you need. You need the tower, not the screen.

    It's 8:05 am here. I've been answering questions since 12:30 pm yesterday. I'm going to bed now. Good luck and if you still need help, post to the "add new answer" box and it will push this question back to the top of page one where others will see it and hopefully help you out.

    thanks, but if i get what looks like a PC screen, can i attach that to a keyboard and then use it?

    No, the monitor is not a computer, it is only a monitor. You need what you call a tower, that is the computer and that is what the keyboard and the monitor hooks up to.

    Now if you're looking for the brand new computers, I think Apple has the one where the computer is integrated right into the monitor. Those may still be a bit pricey though as they are the newest computer out there.

    No. You still need the computer. The screen, keyboard and mouse are merely attachments that attach to the computer. The computer (tower) comes in different shapes, and may not look to you like a "tower", but it will hold the main electronic components of the entire system.
