A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

ok, the point to that build was that you can STILL get value parts for less when building your own. I did my best to exactly match what was listed with the given pc from bestbuy. and someone asked about the ram. supertalent is ok, not the best. the os.... the site did NOT specify 32 bit or 64 bit... so I don't know. I guessed, based off how prebuilt computers shave dollars anywhere they can. and there was no monitor listed, but as stated, you could get one and still stay under their pricetag
