Regardless if you buy a premade computer or make your own, there are some great resources out there for you!
You'll want at least a dual-core CPU as well as a good graphics card! STO seems to like the video card more than anything else. Now, this article is from STO's launch, so things will have changed (generally, count on a MMO putting on "weight" in terms of system requirements).
