Could anyone list all the components needed to build a computer?
Power Supply Unit
CD or DVD drive
Floppy drive, depends
Depending on your needs and what you can get, you may or may not need a video card, sound card, modem card and eithernet card. There are some motherboards that have all of thse built on-board. However the video card and sound card aren't usually the best idea to use for a gaming system.
Also most, if not all these days, will have on-board USB.
You just said to build a computer, not a complete system, in which case you of course also need a mouse, keyboard and a monitor.
With just the stuff I listed before, it's possible to spend only about $500 and build an 'ok' gaming machine but of course this isn't a high end machine that will play everything out and some things that aren't even out yet.
