Looking to build a computer system on a bit of a budget for either yourself or someone else? Might help you to shave off a few extra bucks by taking a look at OCIA's freshly written "Budget System Building Guide", posted up today.

Below you will find our choice of components used in our budget building guide. All of our shopping for this guide was done at We chose Newegg due to their low prices, good customer service and excellent shipping department. I have been a Newegg customer for several years and continue to recommend them to anybody looking for great hardware at very competitive prices. BTW, we are in no way affiliated with Newegg; we simply chose them because we like them. Anyway, we will describe each component below and give our reasons for selecting it to be used in our guide. This guide follows the assumption that you already have the basic components such as a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers. All prices were taken at the time this article was written and are subject to change without notice.
