Budget Desktop Tags: Homebuilt Performance Desktops Build Systems Product Last response: June 15, 2010 6:52 AM in Systems Share Artium June 14, 2010 4:40:36 PM Will it be cheaper to buy a desktop of the shelf, or to build one myself? Can you suggest parts that would suite a budget desktop, or suggest a cheap "of the self" one? I am not hot on performance, but I do not want to buy outdated technologies. Thank You.

In my country hardware usually cost 30% more, and shipping 6kg from US will cost about 200$. My plan is to buy the case and power supply locally, and other parts online. newegg.com does not ship internationally. Can you suggest other website that ships internationally and have similar prices? m 0 l batuchka a b B Homebuilt system June 15, 2010 6:52:04 AM Hmm if u have an online h/w site where u at we could help ya out.
