Our original goal was to build a machine for under $1500 that's both powerful with legs to last us as for quite sometime. I think we've accomplished this with ease and left us some extra money to purchase things like an operating system and other accessories. Of course if this is your first PC you might need something like a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and/or speakers. We didn't take this into consideration but will touch on the subject in the third article in our PC building series.
Next up we're going to show you how to put all this stuff together in our video feature. Be on the lookout for that soon!
