Hello i am English and am currently on my half term and am researching my first computer build, however i am not fantastic when it comes to hardware, but need to start somewhere, and hopfully this will improve my understanding and skills.
i want to make a high end gaming system.
Budget- £1400 ish for everything
I just need some help for some ideas of what components/ makes are good, what to look out for, what things are not compatible. etc
Also would help if i could have a list of everything i will need, and a set up list that i could base mine on.
will i need cables and if so what ones?
thanks i hope someone can help because its alot of money and a i don't want to spend it on a system that isn't as good as it can be.
