Hello everyone. I was looking around and I thought it'd be fun to build a custom PC to run some of the mid to higher end games. I don't know what to buy in respect to the parts working with one another. (Don't know if some parts will work with others). So I was wondering if anyone out there could give me some suggestions. I've watched YouTube videos and still don't understand a whole lot. Budget- I'd like to get it under 1500 or even better around 1200.

Here you go, this is a great setup that will last you at least 3 years on high to medium level detail in games. also type into the search bar here on the site and type in 1200 build and youll see that many people have the same kind of questions, so it would be good to read a few entries to learn about the parts you want to get and the level of performance you will get with that kind of budget!
