It's an OK deal.We can do much better but this build will still do the job.

The build i made you has a better motherboard, two graphics card each, and each of those graphics cards is better , better Hard Drive, an SSD (It will make the PC run a LOT faster), better power supply, better case, better CPU Cooler...

Basicly it's better in every aspect but the processor which is the same in both PC's.
The only con is you have to build it yourself or pay someone to build it for you.

We all had to start somewhere, and frankly, thats exactly how I started.

Youtube videos are a great resource, but dont just watch one! Watch a few and youll pick up things that the others may have missed.

Though videos are great, backing it up with detailed written information is definitely a good idea. You'll find many articles on this site and on others such as PC Pro, Overclockers, Hexus etc.

Once you have bought your items, take the time to (yes, even if you are a male) read the instruction and information booklets that they come with, the diagrams, though confusing at first, will become invaluable when building (Motherboard especially).

Last but not least, you have us on the forums :)  Feel free to ask anything about your build and 9 times out of 10, we'll be able to guide you :)  - 'He who asks is a fool for a day, he who does not, is a fool forever'
