before i post i am very sorry if this is the wrong place to post this i wasnt sure or not.
By the way i am new to the forum ^_^ ive been looking on it for the past week or so. i have been out of the PC world for about 4 years or so due to having macs ( in b4 all the mac hate ) i am trying to build my own gaming PC , my budget is around id say 1600 , i have never built one before , i will want to use it for MMO's and FPs ( i play online games ) can anyone help me out here . also due to the fact that i have NEVER built one before how long do you think it will take? do i need special tools or anything like that? is it pretty simple like the componets only go in one way? when i first started to look at building my own i was very confused / immitated -.- just looking for some help here it will be Very appreciated ^_^.

Best to do 1st - print & read 2-3 of the tutorials & maybe look
at a youtube video:

then use this to initially select components fors your build:

If your $$ permit - start with Intel i-3570k as a cpu, there other good ones
less expensive, tho.

Here - use this as a starting point only, adjust to fit your budget $

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

Some things to consider when looking at that very roughly put
together partpicker build:

A couple areas to upgrade if your $$ allow, motherboard, & GPU.

Case is an area you should def check out further, as there are
good ones in all price ranges, and lots od diff looks as well. I do
recommend at least an ATX mid-tower if you have the space, as
it or a full tower will generally make the cooling and cable mgt
a lot easier.

I figured you alread had a monitor, so didn't include.
