    If you shop around for the parts and build it yourself it would be probably cheaper... What is your budget? and what do you want the machine to do? ill list some parts off for ya

    Ok here goes....

    The most dang basic computer in today's world is gonna need
    • a motherboard (also called a mainboard)
    • a hard drive
    • a CPU (like a Pentium 4 or an Athlon XP)
    • a heatsink, fan, and thermal paste to install on the CPU
    • some RAM
    • a video card
    • a power supply
    • a case
    • a mouse
    • a keyboard

    You're probably going to want some extras like this...
    • a CD-RW drive, for burning CD's
    • a DVD rom drive, for watching DVD movies
    • some speakers, so you can hear your comp yell at you

    Also, make sure that these following issues are solved as far as your motherboard is concerned...
    • Network - some motherboards have a network/ethernet card built right in, others don't. You can pick one up for less than $20, easy.
    • Modem - some of us aren't lucky enought to have broadband, and need a modem. Just like the network card, some motherboards have this one built in.
    • USB/USB 2.0 - are you planning on using USB devices? Getting a USB 2.0 compatible motherboard is a good idea, it's something like 40x faster than USB 1.1

    Did I forget anything?

    Thinks that linkton forgot:

    A sound card (Although many motherboards have integrated sound... but it's generally poor quality)
    A monitor...
    A floppy disk drive
    A CDROM drive (if you're not getting a DVD drive)

    You also might want a printer.
