Doc,
The budget builds are just as much fun as any....IMHO. It's the un-boxing, installation and care loading everything that makes this so addicting. Once you've built one you'll never go back to store bought corporate brand stuff anymore. Did you take any pictures of the inside?

The budget builds always give me an excuse to change something later. An ongoing science experiment My cable management is terrible, because I am always moving components around frequently

On the flip side, once you've built enough computers, sometimes you want to just get something and get right to work. I've built, bought, built, bought, and built. All depends upon what I have going on at the present time.

I do agree with building mid range computers though. This way, you can upgrade in a few years and keep your budget on track. Usually buying high end means way more dollar spent and a couple of years later, both are obsolete.

Ya I started with an old P-3 600mghz and we were off building systems and fixing then for friends and others. In fact just built two budget builds that I would use myself, but I am not ready to move to the next level and I have enought system to keep me busy, one has been up and runniign24/7 since early 2006. I do upgrades from time to time on my systems but usually am happy with then the way they are when I first build, my bro - in -law tells me I have it down to a fine art for glitches and reinstalling the operating system and programs.

Agree'd. Its the thrill making something out of nothing other somthing's spare parts stuff, and making it work.
Doesnt matter if it ends up being a Ferrari, Chrysler, or even a Honda, just as long as you're happy with the result.

Keep up the good builds everyone.

I've got a new one too, coming soon!

You're lucky, my first pc was a 486-DX4 100MHz with 12mb RAM and a 512k VESA card. Best game it could play was Destruction Derby 2, and it even battled with that! Lol... Then my first 'gaming' pc had an AMD K6-2 500MHz with 96mb RAM and a Riva TNT2 32mb AGP card. Couldn't do much more than Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament, and everytime we wanted to play Warcraft 3 networked I had to borrow some extra RAM from a friend...

Hey now... Honda make some darn good cars! Lol.. Remember how popular the CR-X was in racing games...?

But yeah, I have to agree there Linne, putting a PC together yourself is a lot more satisfying than buying a pre-built one. Besides, I tend to void warranties within the first month or two anyway......

I remember the DX4 100. You could upgrade from the DX2 50 and coupled with taking the RAM from 8mb to 16mb I thought the machine I had then was awesome. Until I built a Pentium.... And so it goes.

I upgraded a Packard Bell with a 486SX-25 to a Pentium Overdrive chip running at 63Mhz. That upgrade was around $300. I also upgraded the 4MB of RAM on the mobo with a 16MB SIMM chip...that had just dropped in price from $300 to $200. That got me up to a Pentium 60 give or take with 20MB of RAM. The 2x CDROM drive was fabulous at the time.
