getting my first desktop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
im a producer who's had an old macbook as a main workhorse and me and my production want to switch to PC to get more for our money.

Also we like to play games.
my budget without monitor is $1100..

go for a premade computer or try to just buy parts separately and build? is it that much cheaper to build?

You'll have a lot more flexibility to get *exactly* what you want if you assemble it yourself. That could save you money. However, if you manage to find a prebuilt PC that contains the same parts, it will be cheaper.
