A complete beginner on a smartphone with a few questions


#1

So I have an interest in learning to become a programmer mainly for soft ware but as of right now I don’t have a desktop computer I’ve checked out different websites but I’m not really sure about what type of CPU, graphics card, Etc, I would need to get started. I don’t want to break the bank but I do want something that I can add to and build upon as time goes on. if anyone can Point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty much anything should do, any modern computer should be good enough. I bought a second hand computer for $200, and it never let me down. You don’t need a powerful computer, unless you are planning on going into graphic design, then you need a good video card. But for all the languages taught on codecademy, any computer should pretty much do

appreciate the reply bro, I’m gonna look at pc part picker, do some price comparison with other places. Just not alot of options to buy computers other then walmart, best buy, etc. . and idk if those are worth what they charge.

picking parts will very likely be cheaper, it should be, given walmart must charge for assembly. But yea, usually its fine. You just need to find a good deal
