New member here and I'm looking to either build my own PC or purchase a pre-built one.
I am basically just going to use the PC to surf the internet but I really want to get into gaming. I'm looking for a PC that can easily handle all of the newest and hottest games out there without going overboard with crazy uneeded specs and hardware for an average Joe like myself. I'm trying to keep the cost down but I would like it to be somewhat future proof for the next few years. Looking to spend anywhere from $500 - $800 dollars. I already have the monitor, keyboard/mouse etc. and just need the case and goodies that go inside. Any advice would be appreciated.
Also what's the best online tutorial for a noob like myself if I go the route to build my own? Basically a guide for dummies!! Are there other parts or software that will be needed such as wiring etc. or will everything I need come with the hardware I buy?
You know I was reading the reviews on Newegg about the ASRock mobo's you guys are recommending and it seems like every other review is claiming they're junk or DOA. Are other brands more reliable in that price range or are all mobo's like that?
