Solved

This is my first Gaming PC build, am I doing this right?

I went over to the PCPartPicker and started to pick out some parts for a gaming PC.

I don't know much about the noise levels of CPU Coolers, or much about any PC Parts. Can someone tell me if this is a good gaming PC.

If this has ANY problems or anyone has suggestions, please, comment on this thread and help me out with this. I really want to get into PC gaming and away from consoles.

I have a link here to the PC build:

    Oh, so whether or not I want to overclock effects what CPU cooler I should get?

    Is there anymore info you can tell me about PC's?

    Here is any updated build:

    What I noticed is, even with the cheaper less power power supply, I still spend more money.
    With the more powerful Power supply, i spent ~$10-20 less
  4. Ur build is perfect for playing games......... What games are u willing to play
