Hi guys :D 

I want to build my own gaming pc but I have no idea where to start or how, i have thought of buying prebuilt one but after searching on the net everyone's saying that building my own is best and saves more of ur money.. my budget range is around 475-500KD(Kuwaiti Dinar) which is exactly $1730.42 - $1821.49

I play mostly strategy games, Guild Wars, Counter Strike, WoW and I want the fps max when having the graphics on ultra, im really sick of getting freezes and lags :D 

I don't need any parts like keyboard/mouse/headphone/mic/monitor etc..

so plz guys if u could help me with the specs that I need to buy I really want a great PC that would stay with me for years xD :D 

ty in advance and sorry if posted in the wrong section

overclocking is increasing the speeds of a processor through the bios which you can get in at boot-up (you usually press F2). with the new 1155 processors (i5 2500k) it is really easy to do. for a good 1ghz overclock you just push up the cpu multiplier to 43x (for 4.3ghz) and that is it, you dont have to mess with the voltage or anything else and you've got a great oc. that noctua cpu cooler can easily handle 4.3ghz temps

If the system booting faster or loading game levels faster is important, get the SSD; but, that portion of the budget instead devoted to a pair of upper midrange video cards in Crossfire (pair of 6950s) or SLI (pair of GTX560s) should produce nice framerates for at least 2-3 years, IMO....
