[The money is there, you just have to be diligent... (unless you live in a very rural area, or in the city.. lol, I suppose there isn't as much to do....). ----Ethereal_Dragon

There you go, thats the spirit... Now just save up a chunk of change, and keep it tucked away. If you are planning on building a PC around christmas, you would be best off doing some reading to get an solid understanding of how the components work together, and see what is available. If you plan out a system now, don't rule out parts you want due to budget constraints, since prices will drop between now and x-mas. Most important thing at this point is fundage... Develope a plan for that, and the rest will fall in place behind it.

Thanks man, I don't plan on building a whole new PC though. I'm just gonna upgrade the Motherboard, CPU, and graphics card. I want to keep it all under $600 though so ya.
