With the mind numbing amount of options in today's store bought computer selection, and my increasing desire for better "bang for my buck" I am leaning toward building my own computer. While I am by no means a tech savey type, I am not completely ignorant of computer basics.
I use a computer for web surfing, youtube, music downloading- storing- listening, photography basics, and possibly future home entertainment use.
With that being said, what is the basic order of importance for the parts of a self built computer these days, and why.
My budget will be in the 600-700 dollar range but is not set in stone.
Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and Have a great day
