I would just like to start out by saying this is my first time on Tom's Hardware. Recently, a friend convinced me to build a computer, and has recommended that I come here for all my computer needs. I don't know if I am in the right spot, so direct me to the appropriate forum if I goofed. What I need is a computer that will be able to run current games (and games to come) at a reasonable price (around $1,000). At the moment I have a list of components, but as I said, I know nothing of computers. If anyone could give me tips, tricks or corrections I would greatly appreciate it .
