First a little background. I had help building my first PC when i was ~13. I built several after that on my own, but have since lost my touch. My most recent was a prebuilt from iBUYPOWER. And while I have been satisfied... I miss the satisfaction of it being my own.
I am starting to more than notice lag on newer games now, and I can't have that.
So, I need help building a system for less than 1k that will be able to run pretty much as good as possible for the price. I don't know if to say running everything on highest graphics is too wishful.... But that's what I want.
I need to be updated and back in the game of building computers.
Where can I find info that will help me catch up on technology and better understand what's important in a gaming system?
(In the meantime I'll be looking)
Give me tips on what to look for, and full build suggestions are fine too though I'll probably just look.
That GPU is really low end. At his budget, he can afford better. Also, I wouldn't touch that PSU. The OP will want something made by a reputable company and is 80+ certified. Don't cheap out on this part. It's what converts raw electricity into use-able and clean power for your system.
