What can I do to save money while building a PC?
I am a bit of a gamer and I love my xbox 360 but people keep telling me that PC gaming is a million times better. I have bought PC games before and i have a small collection of games from my childhood including worms fortress, thief one and two and Diablo one and two with expansion packs. I have very little income, but I do plan on getting a job soon and saving some money and one of the things I would like to do is build a custom PC so that I can play my games. I dont need the best stuff, just good enough to play old games as I'm not going to pay over $50 for a game. I have never built a PC before and I know very little about hardware, but I have a friend that can help. So does anyone have any ideas on how to cut corners while building this? I would also like to build a case for it so any gaming case ideas will also help. P.S. I'm in South Australia, so I may not have access to some stuff.
