Building a desktop

Can someone please tell me where I can build a desktop with reasonable price?

I am looking to build a desktop for moderate gaming. (i sometimes play borderland 2)

any suggestion what to choose? and what kind of specs?

Re: Building a desktop

If you're in the UK, order your parts from Aria PC , Scan.co.uk or www.amazon.co.uk

In the US, Newegg.com or Amazon.com , also your state may well have it's own chain that does reasonable prices.

Elsewhere, Amazon is always a good bet or a local vendor if they have a good rep

For moderate gaming I would suggest an A8 (~80) or A10 (~100) Richland APU (AMD), and any FM2 motherboard from Gigabyte, MSi, Asus etc (~45-70). Add 4 (~30) or 8GB (~50) of good quality RAM, hard drive (~20 upwards), Corsair/Seasonic/etc PSU (no need for a ridiculously powerful one though, ~40), DVD drive (~15) for installing Windows (although you can install off a USB stick), and a case-look for one with decent airflow, as opposed to one that's just shiny xD (~15 upwards, no need to get one with a built in PSU)

And finally, for a bit more graphics oomph, you can pair an A8 with a Radeon HD 6570 (~35) or an A10 with a 6670 (~40) if you like. You still get decent gaming performance using just an APU though.
