I might not build mine and just buy a custom one from EBay. Because I don't know enough about it, and plus... I want a good computer and a lot of the customs on ebay are nice.

I agree, for $600 you are better of getting a HP or somthing. I have seen deals for AMD 3500+, 1gb ram, 160gb hard drive for about $600.

Yeah I am just going to buy a custom off of EBay. I will get a friend to help me out to buy it cause he is a genius with computers pretty much. So I will try to just do it that way.

It's probably better to buy from a trusted company (online or offline) with warranty to back it up, if possible.
