I've built before and like it more than buying from any PC maker... you get a better quality pc, ect...
BML--I would also seriously consider replacing your hard drive. You would be amazed at how much faster the new hard drives are and you can get them for about $100 bucks. It will make a big difference in overall performance because a big part of computer performance is the access time from the hard drive. You can have the fastest processor in the world and if you have a slow hard drive, you computer performance will suffer. I would go with an IBM and make sure you get at least 7200 RPM with 2 MEG Cache. That will cost you under $100 and its pretty fast. Faster drives will cost more.What I'd like to do to "get started" building one is to get the core hardware (Case/CPU/m-board/RAM) and use my current hardware (hard drive/CD-RW/floppy/kbd/mouse/spkrs).
