I have been wanting to build my own desktop for awhile now. My friend who was eager to help me put together a system and a video card for me that was in my price range. Just wanted to get opinions on this before I purchase it.
Thanks for your input! Should I order the parts online? or should I aim to buy them locally? I have never purchased anything this big online before
online you can usually get a better deal, you just have to wait for them to arrive, the only thing is that occasionally you will receive a DOA which sucks.
I would suggest futureshop cuz they do price-match with 10% discount on difference in the 30days of purchase, although most of their product for computer parts is in their online store as well. but it's easy to get a refund or return item (that's what i like about local stores as comparing to online)
pcpartpicker will guide you well through it... just make sure you are on "canada" or "USA" depending where you live (ie: google search "pcpartpicker USA")
