=============================

Alright, So far through the process of creating a build I have a general idea of what I may be interested in purchasing.
Feel free to tinker around with it and give me suggestions! I have been doing a little research but I only know so much. I honestly want the most powerful computer I can get for the money. The cheaper the better but I'm willing to dump some more dosh on it if I can make it a little more future proof. Thanks for any advice.
