    Hello,
    Anyone know of where I can get unassembled PC kits? Or if in fact such an animal exisits? Or possibly some flavor of what I am looking for?
    I'm looking for something which has all components and software that has to be assembled, or variations of this.
    My son likes working on things, so I'm looking into something like this as a gift.
    Any ideas or similar pointers would be appreciated.
    Thank you for your time,
    patmac

    patmac, if you tell us your budget and what the PC main use will be, we'll suggest what components would be the best to purchase to put a kit together.

    99.9% of the time barebones kits are missing something. But, I believe we can get everything from one store in one shipment ordering the parts independently.

    It really is pretty simple to buy the few parts for a complete PC, and you get to pick exactly what you want for each component. Any pre-assembled kit would probably have some sub-standard components that you may not be that impressed with.

    As always here, thanks for the input.
    I'm looking to spend around $300-500. The uses of this machine ( besides my 12 yr old building it and learning about PCs ) will be for internet, homework, music burning/copying etc, some possible games ( not heavy ones ). I don't want to rule out DVD work either. A possible high speed connection in the future. Thats all I can think of right now, but I think you have the picture now. Sorry I didn't have this info at first.
    Thank you again, for your time!!!!
