Hello, I am in the market for a gaming pc for $1100. I was hoping to build one myself but my parents refuse to let and there is no hope convincing them otherwise unfortunately. So any suggestions as to what website or company i should look into would be greatly appreciated.
How old are you? Judging just by the readability of your post I would bet that you are perfectly capable of building your own PC. There is very little that can go wrong as long as you buy compatible parts and take your time. There are 100s if step by step guides to take you thought every part. If it is something you would really like to do have your parents come read this forum. Put together a parts list and post it, you will get input on what you need to change to line you up for a good setup. It will also give us a good idea of your understanding of the hardware and if you are really ready to do it yourself.
In the very worst case you will get stuck and then just post back here or last resort take it to a local computer store and it will cost you less then $70 to finish it if you cant.
Also a not for your parents you generally get a much better warranty on the hardware if you build your own vs a name brand computer and for no additional cost just be sure to register all your parts.
In general parts from a name brand pc are of the lowest cheapest quality. Look at it like a manufactured home or a contractor on a bid; they cut corners on cost every opportunity they can.
