I built my first computer about 3 years ago. In theory, I won't ever have to buy a new computer, although I will have to replace whatever goes bad. Even that won't be too bad since it's all off-the-shelf stuff.

I also own my own Win7 64 bit software.

Those who are curious should try it. I'm 72 and I figured it out. Got it just like I wanted, too.
Just buy a case that you like and go from there. I bought a Cooler Master case and then a mother board that would fit, and on and on.
About $500, total. Got my monitor from a pawn shop.
