          Motherboard
          Processor (Plus cooler if you want but they generally come with a crappy stock one anyway which does the job unless you plan to overclock.)
          RAM
          Hard Drive
          Power Supply
          Graphics Card (Not needed for Crossfire, but if you want to play the high end games.. then you'll want a good one)
          Computer Case
          +Anything else you want like a Card reader and Disc Drive. If you dont have it already.. then a Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse.

          All cables and fans generally come with the case or component.


          PC's are very simple to build. Everything comes with simple step by step installation instructions. It looks like it will be expensive.. but it will come out cheaper and I highly recommend buying the parts separately and building it yourself.

            Well i went on newegg and found all the parts by themselves and it came to a higher cost then if i was to buy the pc prebuilt.

            Maybe i'm doing something wrong?

              Probably.. how on earth did you manage that? haha :P

              I just looked on amazon for parts. Got it to about $1100. Im not familiar with US vendors so I dont know who the cheapest are but if you looked hard enough you could get it even cheaper.

              Newegg are surprisingly cheap. I wish the UK has something like that...

                I live in Canada prices between Canadian stuff and american stuff is stupid, they get everything a lot cheaper because of tariffs.

                And i went and looked and amazon and still got a higher price the prebuilt but hes everything i found. (some of it is newegg cause i couldn't find one on amazon)

                  Gonna be honest.. thats weird...


                  You could find alternate and cheaper parts and still make it alot cheaper than pre built. Or you could buy it pre built if you want.

                    prebuilt prices are coming way down.

                    Its more comparable now. Atleast some of the ones i have seen.

                    If you find a prebuilt that is on sale its probably cheaper than buying parts seperately.

                      don't forget the price of windows 7 is 200 dollars separately



                      i recommend that if u r low on budget

                      buy a manufacture refurbished

                      with intel i7

                      from Dell, gateway or Lenovo


                      why? it comes with windows7, it has warranty, it has support, it looks good with a brandname pc, more so than say icyberpower w8?

                          Some pretty decent deals there.

                          Not too sure of the Lenovo brand

                            excellent business grade computers from my experience, including laptops etc, they put out some nice things.

                              i would have
                              Except for the fact that i was shocked when i looked up the import taxes on luxury electronics and it was 55%
                              basically everything here is a lot more expensive
                              So i just went for a ride and checked out all the parts
                              I've made up my mind but i dont have the currency yet
                              would you recommend a geforce gtx 870 ? i found one for a bargain

                                your hard drive is in horrible condition, consider buying a new one.
                                Well, given how long it's taken for me to to reconcile my nature I can't figure I'd forgo it on your account.
