Building a pc?

  =SouPBoY= 19:02 13 Sep 03

I would like to build a pc because its cheaper then buying one. Does anyone know how much I will need to spend (low budget) and if there are any guides on the internet for building a pc?

Thats true clayton but there is a gr8 amount of achievement and pride from building a pc and why let peeps like Dell make u pay to build them for you?

The satisfaction of hearing a POST beep on your first self build has no peer. :)

Good Luck

So true, so very very true....

The first build might not be the cheapest but upgrading in future will be cheaper because you can keep most of it and only upgrade whats needed. So your 2nd, 3rd and 4th PC will be cheaper than buying new...

Good luck. Building your own is a great experience and you learn such a lot.

I found the real advantage was that it gave me confidence.
My first PC cost me over £1000 1990 and was scared to open the cover in case I broke it. Nowadays I whip the case off without a second thought. You'll be confident too once you've done it yourself. Gives kudos with yours friends and family also.
