Going to build a PC for college but....
I need your help. I'm going to use the HP-Pavilion 4600 as a building guide since it looks like a good computer. The only thing those stats don't mention is the power supply, mother board, cooling fan, the type of case and the network card. I need your help picking those parts for me. But this is what I'm looking at.
