Default New to Computer Building Help Needed

Alright I am new to building computers and I plan on building one. So to the point how much money would be needed to build a decent desktop. So I am asking you (the experts) what do I need to build a computer?

You buy it prebuilt.

Laptop motherboards come in all shapes and sizes, as do chassis'

I have never seen anybody build their own laptop from scratch, ever.
