it wont be as good as the one you have made up in your list. in a pre-built computer, the parts will usually be of inferior quality and you wont have as many options in the bios. but, building is not for everyone.

I really do want to build one but I'm only 14 so I don't get to much money so if something happens to one of the parts I'm screwed.

Maybe I will still build a computer...I think it would be really fun and I think it would be useful to know how to do.

I promised my mom that if I do build a computer (which I probably will) I'll try and get the over all price down to $650 which won't be hard.

Which NVIDIA video card would you guys recommend? It doesn't have to be great because I was going to just put a video card in and when I get more money I'll buy a better video card.

If I don't build a computer this is the one I was going to get:

Newegg.com - HP Pavilion A6530F(KQ496AA) Phenom X3 8450(2.1GHz) 4GB DDR2 640GB NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Desktop PCs

This wouldn't be as good as the one I was going to build though because it's only a triple core processor.

What size monitor do you have and what games do you play?

I understand that your afraid your first build may not work out. Or that maybe there will be a few parts here and there that will be dead on arrival. But its the same with everything in life.

Also like Nagasama stated you can RMA.

I don't have a monitor yet but I'll be getting this one soon.

I haven't ever played games on a computer but when I build mine I'll play games like Halo.

I went to the RMA website and I don't really get what they do.

Go with one of these.

Newegg.com - 4ms-5ms, Yes, 19", LCD Monitors, Monitors, Computer Hardware

19" wide screens. That 17" normal LCD is about half the width of my 22" wide screen. Trust me go wide screen, you won't regret it.

As far as RMA is concerned, I remember going online talking with a newegg employee, and they gave me like a RMA # that I was supposed to tape onto my Micro-ATX PSU.

You will probably have to pay to ship the product back to newegg. But they will most likely pay for to ship back functioning hardware.
