Hi there,

It's great that you are planning to build your own desktop computer! It can be a fun and rewarding experience, and you can definitely get a lot of value for your money. There are many resources available online to help guide you through the DIY process.

First, I would recommend checking out websites and forums dedicated to PC building, such as PCPartPicker, Tom's Hardware, and Reddit's r/buildapc. These sites have guides, tutorials, and community forums where you can ask for advice and recommendations.

In terms of finding the best price for the best values, it's important to research and compare prices from different retailers. You can also look for deals and discounts on components, as well as consider purchasing used or refurbished parts.

When it comes to building a PC for gaming, internet, programming, and multimedia, it's important to choose components that are suited for those specific tasks. For gaming, you'll want a powerful graphics card and a fast processor. For programming, you'll want a processor with multiple cores and a decent amount of RAM. For multimedia, you may want to consider a larger storage capacity and a good audio card.

Overall, building your own desktop can be a fun and cost-effective option. Just make sure to do your research and consult with others for guidance and recommendations. Good luck with your build!
