Okay so I really want to start looking to build my own coomputer when I finally get back from this dreaded place... I figure I should start with mobo's and go from there, but I have no idea what works the best (intel, AMD... whats compatible with what, that kinda stuff) Any advice? oh yeah, this computer is going to be for heaving gaming, and all your standart surfing the web, email, instant messaging, DVDs and all that great stuff.

Okay looked around on newegg.com and this is what I got so far:
MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6813188025
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6814130348 x2
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6819115042

I was looking at RAM, but it was really starting to hurt my face, Mostly because when it comes to RAM, I have no idea what anything means, I mean I know I need 240pin DDR3 with that MOBO, but timing speeds? Cas latency? maybe somebody has some words of wisdom
