I'm looking into getting or building a new computer on a modest budget of around $1500. I wouldn't like to spend much more or any less for that matter. What parts do you guys recommend for my new pc? I've heard it's much cheaper to build your own, but I'm not that good with installing computer parts. Any vendors that i should look into? Any specific parts that i should get? Remember $1500, i dont want to see any $7000 setups in here!

Don't be scared of building your own system, it's easier, cheaper, than you think, and you'll do a better job than some min. wage worker that was hired last week. Everyone I know that has build their own system can't believe how easy it was.
