Hi,

Do you know if it would be possible to build a PC for $200 or less? :P
Could you list all the specs please?

Thanks! :)

For $200.. It's going to be a really shite PC. Save up more money and buy a better one, better yet, search eBay. Might get one on there for $200 or less.

If your looking to built a high performance pc... theres no way. But if you just wanna build a regulr pc with no special parts its probly possible but your probly better off saving a bit more money and just buying one! :D

It's defenetly possible, lol. You don't need a case for instace, just cut up a box and put it together in there, you can find all the components for even under $200, but it won't be fast of a PC at all, 128MB of Ram, some mother board with a pentim support and couple of PCI slots with integrated video and audio, 20-40GB HD,and pentium 4 1.7ghz or less, and your about done.

$200 no change. :no:
I build my pc last summer. Only the parts cost 10 times that much! (including TFT and case)

There is a chance as I've already posted, there are way cheaper components than yours, you know! :whistle:
