I'm building a gaming computer and i was wondering which strategy of building it i should go by. what i've done is i've chosen the parts i wanted to use and i priced them on newegg and got the total cost, and every day i check them on newegg and see if the price has gone down on anything. also every about two weeks i look online and see if any better parts have come out and if they have i change it to that part. a friend of mine told me it would be better to get a set amount of money, like 5-8 grand and then choose my parts because new and better parts are constantly coming out. i can't decide which strategy to use, wheather i choose my parts and get the money afterward like i have been or vise versa. can someone tell me which would be a better/easier route to travel.

Give your head a shake - a gaming computer will not cost you that much. Ask Why_me or g-unit to build one for you. More like $2000. it's easy to spend other's money - unwisely I might add. The only thing ^ got right was the gpu - although if you do have that much money - go for the GTX690.
Also when asking for advice follow this:
