    You dont need to be a guru mate ,they're quite simple to build.Theres a few guides pinned..It would probably help just to focus on setting up the bios instead.,then on the hardware just follow the manual,its only a few steps..It's a lot,lot cheaper and more choice on choosing the parts to suit you.once you have all the parts it'll only take an hr and your be laughin

    Most of us here have bought the parts for our own computers and built them oursleves.

    You can get a entire system minus the Monitor and OS, and keyboard/mouse for around 200. All directly from a nice place like Newegg.com love that site, alot of us here now swear by it.

    Rather easy to build, and we would help you if you have any questions.

    Yup,building it yourself is the only way to go.You will likely save yourself 200- 400 bucks.Or you could spend what you would have saved and get some even better parts.
    If you can figure out how to use a screw driver and have enough sense to figure out how to put the thermal paste on a CPU then your laughing.You do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to put it together.Start doing some reading for the next couple of days (there are a couple of good guides on the net) and then start ordering parts.When you get them if you have any questions,come back and post them here and somebody will help you out.
