Hello!

I have recently been wanting a new PC, and was originally planning to buy one. My interest was finding one that would be nice and fast, good for gaming, and something I could expand and upgrade in the future. However, the kind of computer I wanted was a bit out of my price range. After speaking with a few buddies, and reading the "Building a New Computer" series post parts 1-5, I immediately wanted to build one. My Tech level is about average, so I'm seeking any and all advice. I've never failed anything I've put my mind to. I would like to know any opinions about the components I've picked out for the system I want.

Raphoenix,
I appreciate that article, thanks for filling me in on that. However, I've already ordered my CPU and MB :(. Hopefully, my AMD will still perform and meet the standards I'm hoping to achieve. Thanks again

Steve
