A little while ago I came to the forums asking for help putting together an $800 gaming PC (no monitor, no keyboard, no mouse, just the tower). This was the list that was suggested to me (thank you so much!), but since I didn't have the money to build it immediately I saved the list and kept an eye on it ever since.

I realized that I'll need a wireless internet adapter if I want to use this computer in my room. I'm not sure what I can skimp out on to keep this computer under budget.

I do a lot of multitasking, though for the most part this PC is for gaming. Thanks for the help!

  • WiFi adapters are totally hit and miss. Even expensive brand/model can be a dud with some wireless routers due to some incompatibilty or such. And no wireless adapter will help if surrounding environment between adapter and router is terrible. With that said, two of the most popular wireless adapters listed at newegg is priced at $13.99 w/ free shipping and $15.99 w/ free shipping.
  • Those with suitable electrical wiring in their homes, there is the option of powerline ethernet. SmallNetBuilder
