about $2000 budget
I'm torn between building one again and buying a complete setup. My main concerns are that I wouldn't be given any financing options if I buy all the components separately (and would have to pay everything at once), as well as I would have to buy the OS separately.
I plan on using the computer for internet nonsense, music and hopefully get back into gaming. Though I'm not a gaming fiend like I used to be, I would still like above average parts - eg video, monitor, CPU
I feel like I can't win with this one. Any suggestions? If building one still makes more sense for someone in my situation, recommendations for a phatt system??
