A Beginner's Guide to Building a PC for $500

Hard Drive

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200 RPM Internal Hard Drive

Price: $48.60 on OutletPC

This should be a pretty self-explanatory slide. Hard drives are a pretty common thing in our world. For this build, I recommend a 1TB hard drive. Games take up a lot of space these days, and 1TB should be plenty of space for whatever you are wanting to play.

Now, you may be wondering why a hard drive has an RPM measurement. This showcases how fast the actual disk that data is written to spins. The faster the disk spins, the faster data can be written and recalled. 7200 RPM is pretty standard for a hard drive, so it will be perfect for our build here.
