Well my computer is starting to age so I am now thinking about the idea of building a new pc. I am 17 and I am looking at getting a summer job. I am hoping that I can set aside a bit of cash to build a new computer. That being said I won't have much money to pour into it. I also have limited experience building computers as well. With my first build a couple years ago I had to take it in to a computer repair shop to have a couple of things fixed. So I really didn't go through the entire process of building a computer on my own. I would like to be able to do it completely by myself this time around.
- Since I am on a budget, would you recommend I do an AMD based system?
- Could I use my current hard-drive with windows 7 and everything on it, or do I need to buy a new hard-drive and start from scratch?
I will post some of the parts I am thinking about later to see if they are all "compatible" with each other.
Thanks in advance!
