I can build a custom desktop for you.
I can do this in two ways. I can get a budget from you and what kind of computer you are looking for (e.g. gaming, video editing, general office) and make the best one in that budget. The other is to tell me what you want to use the computer for and I can offer a hgh end and mid range price for you. This method will take a few days to get a quote so I can do research.

I also offer upgrade services on your current desktop (e.g. memory, hard drive, graphics card, cd/dvd/bluray drive).

I will have to order parts for most custom computers so the build will take anywhere from 1-3 weeks depending on how long it takes to get parts after I order them. I am just a student and can't afford to have a large stock of parts on hand. If you need it right away I can get parts in Chico but it will be more expensive since local stores charge more than online warehouses.

For parts and software I charge cost plus 5% for example if a part costs $100 I would charge $105. If you want you can supply the parts and I will assemble them for you. you can also supply some parts if you want.

For labor I charge $16 per hour rounded to the nearest half hour plus cost of any parts and media not supplied by the customers. This is less than half the cost of a computer repair shop. I offer advising on part replacement and upgrades.
I accept cash, check, and paypal

I also offer advising on buying laptops since I can't build them. This would be done either by email or by phone. There is a flat $20 fee for advising to be paid through paypal. I would need to know what you wanted to use the computer for, any necessary features (e.g
