@ServiusTheBear That is how I learned to build computers as well. That and accidentally shorting out the motherboard on the cheap aluminum motherboard tray. Turned it on for the first time and ZAP one dead Cyrix 6x86 CPU and Mobo!
LOOK at this site CYBERPOWER PC
i saved like 500 dollars off of building my own
what you do is take one of there higher priced builds and break it down too close too what you want
you be surprised at the savings you can make
