But thank you Iceclock for all the help I'm still new to this but I'm hoping to become decently great at building them I decided to build my own cause I started looking around on Craigslist at all the custom built computers from people and shops and looking up the parts and they would be discontinued parts so that just made me not want it. I want something more decently up to date that will last alot longer having to buy minor things like a bigger better hdd.
Is there anything else I'm gonna have to buy like thermal paste for the cpu or anything you can think of?
