Hello
my brother is looking to spend about 500 dollars on a brand new computer. He is looking at names like hp and a couple dell computers all around that mark. He was thinking of making his own, however would it be worth it due to his relatively "small" sum that he is willing to invest? He isn't a hardcore gamer but needs something with enough power.

Thanks.

That depends on a few diffrent things such as budget and skills. If you have the skills to put together your own build from parts that do that it is usually cheaper if you buy the parts online (make sure you use reputable sites like U mart) and it allows you to build or tweak to your specifications. If you doin't feel confident building it youself you should proabably get a custom build from a PC store it will be more expensive but you have the guarntee that it will be done right and well.
Hope this helped.
