I really don't need anything special but I'm trying to spend as little as possible and still get a decent deal. I'd rather not spend more than $700-750, but that includes buying a monitor, speakers, and a keyboard. So I'm really not sure how major the price difference would be between buying some custom or premade PC vs building one on my own, or if it's even worth it for me. I don't even need anything too spectacular for that price, I don't care so much about having the absolute best performance for my money given that I'm upgrading from this dinky four and a half year old laptop. I'm also not sure I have the time to spend assembling and troubleshooting the thing when I could really just use one sooner than later. That's not a major thing but I just don't feel the motivation to put that much effort into it unless it's really worth it. I don't need advice on what to buy for building one so much as whether I should or not and what my best options besides building would be. A while back someone once recommended a couple custom gaming pc companies to me that were supposedly better for smaller budgets, but I can't find the bookmarks I had for those and don't remember what they were.
