    Why should we "put together" anything? That's your job.

    You can't come here expecting people to wait on you. We are here to help people, not do their work for them. Show a little initiative yourself.

    Elvandil is right, you need to show some initiative, go to Newegg, select parts that you think will work, then post the list with links. Experienced people (such as Elvandil for example) will go from there and make recommended changes trying to stay within your budget.
    Also a dig at anybody such as you made is not the way to elicite serious help.

    I'm going to let that one pass, but my patience is not infinite. :D He's on thin ice.

    Indeed. One can surely not surmise that "my first pc build" implies one does need help in the first place. That is simply too obvious and apparently does need spelled out. Had someone the skill to put together a build, they likely would not need to post it and ask for help, but alas, that is too complicated an implication.

    The ice appears to be very thin.

    You do not specify the type of gaming you intend. This will decide the level of specs recommended. Your upper budget of $2000 does not need to be reached to build even a high end gamer (but it can be). You need to think about a platform. AMD or Intel. AMD will give you more for your money. Intel will give you more at a higher price.

    He's gone on vacation, dustyjay. I really did not appreciate that last comment.

    I'm going to close this one.
