Mantorp writes "My ancient (6 or 7 yr old) PC finally died and I think it's the powersupply or motherboard or whatever, it just shuts down as soon as push the powerbutton. Anyway, it's an old single core machine and I think I deserve a new slightly faster machine. I don't want to spend more than $2-300 and it seems I can get significantly more bang for the buck by getting a kit rather than a ready made PC. But, how hard is it to assemble one of these from TigerDirect or NewEgg? My level of expertise is limited to having popped in more ram, installed a video card with a TV tuner, and replaced failed hard drives. If it's much much harder than that I'll probably screw it up."
