    Yeah you can definitely probably build it for cheaper...I would also recommend a little more RAM than 3GB.....4 at the least IMO

    Ok, Well Ive looked around and I was Pricing stuff on Newegg.com, but the Problem is I dont know what all I need.... nor do I know what is compatible with What (I.E. Processor for motherboard etc.)

    I would GREATLY appreciate it if someone could let me know what it will take to build a Desktop from the ground up, what ever you would get yourself.

    If someone wanted to "One-up" me, You could Link me to all the Right Parts it would take.:thumbup:

    if it didnt have onboard graphics and a bit more ram it could have been a decent deal
