What do you mean how do you pick the parts? You click on the little box/bubble next to the item you wish to have in your computer. If your new to the building of computers and such, I'd suggest a less complicated pre-built company or you wait and do some reasearching.

Are you trying to ask us what parts we would recommend? If you are then tell us if you are a gamer or if you're just using the computer to run simple programs?

just go to any online store and pretend your buying parts but never go to the "checkout" it will give you a list with prices calculated. if you need help with a parts list just give us an accurate description of your budget and needs for the computer and we'll help you work something out.

Mmm that's really not possible, you'd be wanting to look into the 1000-1200 price range for a better gaming pc. I mean, you could build a budget gaming PC but don't expect excellent performance.
