I am looking to build a Gaming Rig but could use some help because I don't really know too much about the insides of a computer =/.
Approximate Purchase Date: This weekend
Budget Range: $600 Before rebates [Will have a little extra in case of shipping costs]
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming is my main priority. Other than that, I just watch a few youtube videos from time to time and check my e-mail of course.
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I have no preference. Doesn't matter to me what site the parts come from as long as they work.
Country of Origin: USA. Ohio to be more specific.
Parts Preferences: No preference again.
Overclocking: Not too sure how to do it, so it's between No and Maybe.
SLI or Crossfire: Not entirely sure what this is....so No or Maybe.
Monitor Resolution: 1024x768
Additional Comments: Also need to factor in an OS sadly....there goes $100 already >.>
Edit: I would also like to add that I don't really stick to one game. I switch it up quite a bit. I usually go for F2P games because I have Xbox LIVE and spend more time gaming on there than anything so I don't feel like paying to play games on both my computer and xbox.
I would like to thank you before hand for any and all help. I really can't wait to get my computer built and running!
I made my purchase this morning and will have the parts by the weekend. I can't wait! I'm currently running on an Intel Celeron 430 @ 1.80 GHz and an Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family =/. So this is going to be a HUGE upgrade xD
