Wanting to build a tower.
Hey guys, I want to build a tower but the thing is, I don't even know where to go to get all the materials. I'm also wondering what would be the range of price for a custom built computer, or would it depend on what I want to put in there?

Depends on what you want in it. So far mine is planned at $4,000 and I've only put in the first $800
You can build a good one for between $700-$1000 and beyond that your going into extreme performance.
If you need help case modding, or building a custom case yourself let me know
Good place for parts

We have to order online?

No, but that's most likely the only way to buy the parts you want. You could go to a huge electronics store in your area and see if they sell computer parts, but I guarantee they won't have half the shit you want

Aw... Alright. I doubt my parents are going to put the money up for this 800-1000 dollar computer. Oh well. Haha.

You can have shops in your close area too, but prices are best on the internet. If you are going to build a gaming rig but do not want to spend alot of money on it you are looking about 800 dollars maximum. And for that you get great performance. Even spending 600 dolalrs can get you a relatively fast machine for general use and not 1080p battlefield on high settings. I also believe you could build a fast machine for 500. I dont know american pricing.
Parts you need:
Graphics card (optional but highly advised)
If you need any more help just add me on skype or pm me.

Price really depends on what it's used for, you could go super budget and build a micro tower for like $200-$300 but don't expect it to be a beast machine. It would probably be enough to get you through school

I was shopping on Newegg, and my computer would cost 500-750 ish. I was just estimating. Strike, what's an optical drive?
