    Isn't very hard.

    Ok, really though it isn't that hard, just go to somewhere like newegg and add to cart everything you can think of. You need case, motherboard, cpu, ram, hard drive, cd rom, video card, power supply, NIC card, modem? floppy? Just make sure your mobo/cpu/ram are compatible first, then pick what you want to go with it. Or you can find a "barebones" system that already has a few things like the mobo/cpu and maybe RAM then you just buy the rest and finish putting it together.

    As for putting it together, that is not hard. Its like put the square peg in the square hole, round peg in round hole. You shouldn't have much trouble. But if it is too confusing, find a friend you know who is a geek and he can do it in a few minutes.

    First of all, you need all the obvious parts.
    Case, power supply, motherboard, cpu, memory, graphics, hard drive, dvd burner,
    keyboard, mouse, speakers.

    Installation is not hard.

    The best way is to start with a budget, and post it here.

    If you can't handle google, you can't handle building your own rig.

    Everything you need to know is here: Dell.com

    Set a budget. Pick your options. Wait a week.

    Well oftentimes it's more comforting to talk to an actual human being for advice before setting off on the vast plain that is the Internet

    personally, the hardest part for me is choosing the correct parts, having to keep everything in budget

    about the hardware itself, i guess connecting the power/reset/hddlight/speaker could be a little tricky if you don't have the pinout diagram

    if you have a screwdriver and your smarter than a rock you can build a computer. I think the scariest part is the first time you turn it on and it starts or doesnt start. Dorkultra is right too, setting the pins is the hardest part of it

    Start a new thread. Copy/paste a Core2Duo build from a previous thread for us to start with.

    That, plus let us know what you will be using from your old build, if anything.
