Austin, TX has a great market for IT-related stuff.

Houston, which is closeby, could also be an option. There are lots of colleges/universities in Houston.

If you're willing to live outside of SF or SJ, yeah. The public transportation system in this area is great. Think Melbourne or Sydney.

As for income, well... If you're working full-time, you should be able to live on your own in a studio/1 bedroom. If you're just working part-time, you'll probably need to room with one or more people, but that's the case with most mid-sized cities. Most people do it to save money anyway.

I would reccomend Lubbock Texas, it has a population just over 200,000 and is home to Texas Tech Univ., its a very affordable place to live and has nice people.

Unless someone can convince me for another place.

Im choosing Austin because of the IT market there and sounds like a very good place to live in.
Thanks again, Guys
