Hello, I've been lurking the PC Gaming forums for a while now, but all the threads I checked seem to have builds that are a tad bit out of date (or the deals on parts have passed) and can't answer the big question on my mind: how do I build this thing?
First things first, I'm looking to spend under $900 total in parts for this. But I'm looking for the best performance I can get with this budget. I'm talking running things on ultra/high quality.
The other issue (that was mentioned earlier) was that I need a step-by-step guide or how-to on building a custom PC, as I'm having a hard time finding this myself.
You could easily cut that down to $900 by going with a 7970 instead of the 670 GPU (save $100+). I prefer using Intel with nVidia and AMD with AMD/ATI anyway (personal preference). Step down, but not a big step down. Also, Microcenter has much better prices on CPUs/Motherboards than NewEgg and you can save money there, too (save ~$30-60).
As far as how to build, it's mostly putting things in their place. It's really hard to screw up because everything has an obvious place that it goes and an obvious cable that connects from component to component. Check YouTube for a basic guide.
