    ok so yea I know alot of the basics and whatnot, but I want to build myself a pretty decent gaming computer.. now I know I need mant things keyboard, monitor, motherboard, ram, OS.. and the whole nine yards but can someone throw up exactly everything I need. The TSG build ur computer was a good read, but didnt help me as much as I needed. Also should I start by looking at cases first or motherboards or what? Thanks

    If you've never actually built a computer, yourself, before. I would like to recommend using someone like www.cyberpowerpc.com or www.ibuypower.com . They will build the system for you and are WAY cheaper than name brands like Dell and Gateway. I am a loyal patron of CyberPowerPC, so, give'em a try and see if they suit your fancy. Their selection is some-what limited but it will save you a lot of time and hassle.

    Yea its been a week or so, but ill bring this topic back, no I havent built a computer before. Although I do have a friend who can help me put it together, but he is not so reliable on what to buy. Once I get everything im sure he will be able to put it together. In the meanwhile ill look at the sites provided.. thanks
