There is of course exceptions in some cases. Firstly we need to know exactly what you need. A complete system including OS keyboard mouse monitor? Or just the pc itelf in a case? Are you open to all brands or do you prefer something specific? moosemoose November 17, 2012 6:51:29 PM I would want to get a desktop, mouse, and keyboard under 850 Brands don't matter at all; I'm open to any. And I have heard that that barebones kits can be expensive, but I would worry about finding all parts that configure with each other. I still want to build it though. manofchalk a b 4 Gaming November 18, 2012 12:20:21 AM Fill out the form I linked to above. Because so far we don't know where you can buy components, what you are using the machine for or if there is some particular want or constraint on the system. moosemoose November 18, 2012 10:41:27 PM Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: 2 weeks Budget Range: 850 (After Rebates and Shipping) System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, business Are you buying a monitor: No Do you need to buy OS: Yes Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Nothing else really matters.
