Thinking about building your own PC?
Today's video features a build that's tuned for price and performance -- we're looking for a system that will glide through your toughest apps without burning through your hard-earned cash.
Since no two custom rigs are alike, Paul focuses on the planning stage of a PC build. What parts can be salvaged from an older PC? Which components are most important to choose first, before planning out the rest of the system?
Our build features an AMD quad-core CPU and an MSI Motherboard with built-in SATA Rev. III and USB 3.0. What parts would you choose for your performance PC? Tell us on the EggXpert System Builds forum:
