My System Specs

Default

Do you plan on putting a legit operating system on it? (Of course you are!! :) ).

Do you have any old gear that will go into the build?

I tried to put a low cost system together last fall and came to the conclusion that a full low-end build with a legit OS couldn't be done for less than the low end pre-built systems from one of the big-box stores.

It pretty well comes down to the OS. I could put together better quality parts, but I always came away short by the $100 or so that a legit OS would cost me.
