Actually, I don't really have much knowledge on building computers, myself. Yet, my interest is filled with life and herpes. I usually go around computer forums, copying down parts that people use to make their ideal "Budget Gaming PC," in the $600 - $700 range. I would like to be able to run Starcraft 2 and other brand new PC games flawlessly on Ultra settings, and it is apparently possible for $700. However, If I understand correctly, building your own PC is beginning to become less rewarding, as pre-built PCs come in at about the same value.

What are your experiences?

I have some selections from "Newegg.com" on my computer that I will edit into this post when I get home. It contains all you need to build a super-human computer for under $800.

It is overwhelming, but I think you just need to keep in mind that it's hard to go wrong paying $800.

I've been browsing computerforum.com for a while, and they always have the most up-to-date, best value parts posted.

I would be extremely excited to put this together for you if you got it.

Note that this does not include keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, and operating system. We'll be able include them, no problem, though.

I would buy this build in a second if I had the money. It's an option you should seriously consider. Don't be intimidated self-built computers - it would be extremely rewarding to learn in the long run.

This isn't just a budget PC - this is all quality parts. It will blow your eyeballs to FUCK.
