I'd like to build my own desktop but i don't have any experience with doing so. I don't have much knowledge on what parts i exactly need. Black Friday is coming up and I figured now would be a good time to do it. I have a budget of about $700, where do i get started? Any recommended builds? where do I get the parts for cheap?
Well, to get parts online and configure a good system, I recommend you go to PcPartPicker. There it takes you step by step of what you need to put into a PC. And it adapts to what you've chosen so that parts are guaranteed to be compatible. A great build for your budget would be this one here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/26d57
It has great power and will last quite a long time. You can also modify the parts list if you wish to get a feel for the website and maybe make it cheaper for you.
