Choosing the right components for a custom-built computer can prove to be
an arduous and time-consuming task, especially with the large array of choices
at varying performance and price levels. Dropping a bundle of cash on the fastest
processor, graphics card or monitor can eat up your budget pretty quickly, leaving
little room for all of the other components. This is especially true if you
are on a tight budget. That GeForce 7800 GTX 512 MB is of little use with a
sub-$100 processor or 128 MB of system memory. There is no perfect, all-around
solution that works for everyone - it all depends on two things: what your needs
are and how much money you are willing to spend.
