Hi, i need help to build a computer. i never done this before and i dont know what do i need for making it. i want it pretty much for gaming. all i want to make it extra ordinary so i could keep it for a few years and still will be good. so i think the 2gb graphic card would be worth it in this case and i dont know what processor and ram should i do for it. i want it to be real fast like 8gb or 4gb i dont really know whats right but i want it real fast. i dont want to pay too much for it too. pls help me.

You have to fill out a form and mail it in. Then wait anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
