I am putting together a gaming rig. I probably won't do much other than that with the computer except some light word processing. I have never built a computer before so I was wondering if you guys could take a look at what I've put together and let me know if I have some glaring problems with it. Everything that is in this selection is from Newegg. The total comes in around $1300 and I really don't want to go over that. I really don't know how to make hyperlinks for them sorry.
