Hello all! I have recently been getting into PC gaming and my laptop cannot play most games that I would love to play. I haven't built a PC before but have been studying up on how to build one. I need help from experienced builders on what parts I should choose. So anyone that can help it would be much appreciated! Oh and I am only 14 but I believe I can handle it. :)

Gaming is your priority, so we do kinda need the resolution (for GPU suggestions)

"Maybe" on OC and SLI/Crossfire is tough. Yes and No would have different suggestions (on GPU, MOBO, PSU and, GPU)

CPU: i5-2500k $220
Mobo: Asrock z68mextreme3 gen3 $125
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint f3 1TB $60
ODD: Any for $20
Ram: 8GB (1.5v ddr3 1600mhz) about $50
Case: Corsair 400R($100)or 500R ($130) or InWin Buc ($75) or Lian Li First Knight ($60)

CPU Cooler: CM hyper 212+ $30 (If OCing)
PSU: Depends on GPU, and on whether you will SLI/ crossfire
GPU: Depends on resolution, but I'm guessing it'll start at either a GTX560Ti or an HD6950
