would you need a full package? mouse, keyboard, monitor? or just the tower?

Dude...building a computer takes no skill. It's pretty much legos, except all the pieces only go in one way with the exception of certain USB connections on the motherboard.

3 part tutorial on how to build a computer:

My favorite tutorial...

All you need is a screwdriver and something to quench your thirst. It's really simple.

This is my $0.02. I would find a friend, family member or anyone that has built a computer and is comfortable building a computer. Ask them to help you build one.

Pre-built computers are expensive. You will get way more bang for your buck if you can build or find someone to help you build a PC.

Once you have done it one time you will remember forever. it is like a puzzle. But a very small 10 piece puzzle. Parts will only fit where they go.

IMOHO it is harder to load the OS and get the software working right than putting together the hardware.

Remember, people here on toms are willing to help.
