The price will vary - it depends on where you purchase from. A very rough ballpark figure could be anywhere from $50-$200.

@reilly how much cheaper is up to you

pretty much if you pick your parts and watch for certain deals sales even combo packages bare minimum would be 500.00 and that is scraping the bare minimum

Desktop. Building your own laptop is extremely difficult (in comparison) and much harder to find parts.

He asked about a laptop.

But yes, he could get a gaming desktop for a lot less.

Building desktops is fun.

I really despise prebuilt computers.
