Been awhile since I have priced out a build! I have convinced my friend to get a PC lol but he has a much smaller budget than I am used to. $700 is the max for the tower(No peripherals). Also I have heard the state of the market is kinda bad at the moment, could someone let me know whats going on with that and if he should wait like a month or two to buy the parts. Thank you!
