I built my first computer in 8th grade around 03 and since then have lost touch with technology, I have had several laptops bought for me with what seems like good specs yet usually end up to be carp ... Yet after spending 3 days researching laptops and 1 day looking through laptops I have decided to build my own. Yet I now know nothing about computers again ( I remember how to assemble it but had to look up what all the different processors do, HDD vs SSD drives, etc... I have found a few builds around the internet and I think I have narrowed it down to 2 all are under $400. I would like to know what you think about the hardware and if anything should be upgraded (I am flexible in price but I would like to keep it under 500 since i'm going to need a monitor hopefully 400). I would love to be able to let you guys have $900 to play around with but i'm still a student and cant afford it yet lol. Thanks again guys I appreciate your help!
*I still dont know which tower to use, which power supply and which cooling system to use*
