How much is it to build a Non-Gaming Computer?

Postby delano » Thu Sep 27, 2012 1:40 am

Hello i am 14 freshman in high school and always wanted to try to build my own computer. It has always interested me. But how much would it be? I don't really care about running games such as Battle Field 3 And Skyrim. I just want it to run internet pretty fast. So can anyone tell me the price in USD. Plus it would be my first time that i would build one. I just want it to save money and so my family can use it for internet.

You can build a nice pc for around 300$.
You can build a nice gaming pc for 800$+.
Note that you can upgrade as you go. Chances are, a year from now, your pc will be built for gaming. Most gamers buy new parts every couple months.

you are looking at anything in the $2-300 range to get a normal business class system up and running, using basic non performance parts. like generic no-brand power supply and bottom of the range motherboard, this is great way to learn as well so if you damage one bit putting it together it wont cost too much to try again. good luck
