    I'm not understanding the question. What "desktop"? You mean a computer to run a robot? You want to make a computer from scratch? Clarify, please...

    it would be cheaper to just buy a desktop. check the de11 outlet. You have to know what you want to do, what you need and work it out from there. Microprocessor, signal/data lines etc
