So recently i decided it is time to finally do something about my six year old pc. I've never built a system before and I only have a vague idea on how to assemble one. So I was wondering if anyone here could help me with the components/ any other materials i would need to build one on my own. My budget is $1,400 i would like to stay under that, but if there is something that i could purchase that would boost my pc's performance significantly i could make an exception. Also the computer would be used primarily for gaming and I've already got me a decent monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Any help would be appreciated
Hope this helped, added an SSD for fast loading times, etc. You download the OS on the SSD and put your frequently used programs there as the SSD is MUCH faster than a regular HDD Also you have space for overclocking here and cooling is no issue!
Thank you that is very helpful! I noticed you put windows 8 on there instead of 7 admittedly I don't know much about operating systems but I thought 7 was preferred by gamers. Was I wrong in thinking this or is the difference minimal now?
