Not actually sure if this should be here or the Gen, but I guess as it mainly pertains to gaming, here is best. On to the point, I've been considering a PC to catch up on some gaming and emulation I've missed out on, especially since I recently got a Steam account. Fan stopped working on my laptop so even with basic games, it quickly attempts to set me on fire, so now seems like an opportune time to look into this more seriously. The main question is, is it possible to build a tower on the cheap, or more precisely, a powerful one? Are they hard to assemble, or could anyone do it? How much would I be looking at in parts before diminishing returns kicks in over value? Also, is it possible to use my tv as a monitor, via HD cable, rather than needing a separate monitor? That would be quite handy, as I'm not exactly blessed with space to set up a full PC desk.
