Take a little advice from an old timer if you don't know what your doing building computers DON'T it will cost you money if you get it wrong.
AMD and Pentium is a matter of choice in my view AMD is better it is up to you.

Building a computer is not just about going online or what ever and picking this and that and putting in a flash case these parts have to work together a MOBO is not easy to set up for starters
it is not like a plug and play device,but if you think you can do it good luck.

I always build but I make sure before i order that all the parts will be compatable. I always cross my fingers when I first switch on if it works then normally everything will be alright. I have had a few that did not work first time but sorted the problem fairly quickly. Make sure that whoever you buy from has a good reputation for returns. Some are worse than useless and I will not use them. Amongst the best are Misco, Novatech and dabs.

I've just recently bought one from here click here very pleased with it, they supplied without software for me because I use Linux. Delivered very quickly and the customer service was very good when I had cause to call them.

I could have built it, but to be honest it really wasn't worth it.

I did build a cheap one but to be honest, the performance isn't up to much and it looks crap.

Before I did it though Id already studied my A+ guide and still had a couple of teething problems, including finding out Id been sent a dead mobo.

I used to build but today it costs more than ready built. Which ever way you go they are out of date very quickly. Get one for the type of use you intend.
