Okay seriously.... You need to stop new threads every day on the same subjuct.

for 5-600 bucks you won't get squat.. considering its going to be at least 50 bucks for shipping, and then add duty and tax. You'll have 350 for a system.

The system you found on newegg will be your best option.

I want to add a few upgrades, like a new graphics card and such for gaming, what do you guys think of this PC? Is it worth the price?

I wouldn't recommend that computer. Also try to keep everything to one thread. You have like 5 different threads, which makes it harder for people to help you.

Saddly thats the only thing he can afford. I've tried peicing one together, but the os keeps blowing it up.

Yes, as its a prebuilt, based on parts, it'll be update-able. Much more than any of those prebuilt used ones you have posted.

Youre downfall is you need an OS and screen, which is easily a 300 dollar initial purchase.

Your only other option is to buy used from a reputable seller on here, or other big forum.


*edit*
Welcome to high prices.. ven with the dollar at 96cents.. we bend over and think happy thoughts.

Default Scared about pre built kits

I realize pre built kits are cheap, but I am terrified about putting the cpu in, as it is a very difficult process I hear. If I buy a prebuilt kit do you think a computer shop would put the parts together? If so how much do you think they'd charge for labour?

*edit*
Ok we'll keep it here. I have a big budget, but as I mentioned I know how to put a computer together, I'm just not confident enough, check out this kit. Do you think it's a good deal?

Buy the Asus P5KPL-AM SE Motherboard Barebone Kit at TigerDirect.ca
