Some PC Ideas

Another friend of mine is wanting to build himself a computer that he can mix music on and occasionally play a game on. I sent him a 3 lists of different computer parts to build 3 different computers. I put together a list for one cheap PC, one media-center PC and one faster gamers PC. I emailed him these lists but I’m putting them on here hopefully to inspire some people to build their own computers. It’s a fun hobby and develops skills that you can in turn use to fix your computers when they break on you. Read on for the lists.
