Additional Information

A) Yes, I stayed under budget by $15. The strategy that I used was a less coasting mouse and a higher better video card.


B) My customer should by the computer that I build because he is working on making GTA 6 better then GTA 5 by having better graphics and better characters. He should buy my computer because my computer has the best video card out there


C) In general, the advantages to building you own computer is you can build it the way that you want. If you working on graphics then get the best graphics card out then and not the worst sound card because you do not need sound that much.


D) In general, the advantages to buying a preassembled computer is that it is much less time consuming and you can buy it and use it right after you get home.
