No offense....but if you are the least knowledgable computer person then maybe you would be better off having someone build for you or buying a 'packaged' computer.

Anyhow...if you are set on building then you could get a great machine for that budget. What will the computer be used for? Are you going to be mostly gaming?

you can become alot more knowledgable if you read around on these forums and other computer-related websites, search google, etc.... it's not too terribly confusing. :nerd:

I'm sure plenty of people on here would not hesitate to list you 10-15 of the most expensive parts out there. But what good will that do you when you have to assemble it, maintain it, and troubleshoot it? You'll have to ask someone else for help, pay someone for this, for that, etc.

Try to gain even minimal knowledge on computers...I promise it'll make your life alot easier, especially if you plan on spending that kind of money!

I found that Tom's Hardware Guide was very informative and easy to understand. I learned a lot there.
