Now that you’ve seen what some preassembled computers cost, research the components needed to build a high-end development system for the Research and Development Team. Visit a computer parts supplier (such as www.pricewatch.com) on the Internet and provide the complete specifications, prices, and URL to the specific part for the components shown below. Then add up the prices to find the total cost of your custom-built computer.

 

Be aware of the following when completing the table below:

  • The component information/specs should include all of the specifications needed for the component.
  • The URL should go to the part on the vendor site and not to the high level site domain.
  • The component price should be in US dollars.
