Well as the thread headline states I am trying to line up the parts to buy for my first build... I looked up extreme outer.vision and their wattage calculator but some of the fields on there I honestly do not know what to put. Alot of the computer terms are new to me. I have been researching and reading and I have spent the last 3 weeks obsessing over not making costly mistakes due to my ignorance.Thank you very much for the Help!!
