I can't help with the question, but I did want to say "Welcome to the forums!" and share a little general info about posting here.

I've moved this thread to our Advice, Info, Recommendations forum (and modified the title a bit so folks know you're looking for something for gaming -- which I assume you are since you originally posted it in the Gaming forum).

You can edit your posts to avoid creating multiple posts in a row. Just click on "Edit" in your post and then make changes or additions. I've gone ahead and done that for you this time.

Finally, be sure to take a look at  CR 's site rules. They give a good idea of what's expected on the forums.

Good luck building your new PC!

I built mine for around 1k... kind of depends on what you want out of the computer, but building an okay gaming PC for around that is definitely doable, if I had to do it again I'd probably spend a bit more on my graphics card, just to get more life out of it.

Ordered all my parts from a combination of Tiger Direct, NewEgg, Amazon Prime

Some general suggestions without knowing what you are looking at for specs:
- if you have the room, get a full tower. Granted they are huge, but it makes assembly and part swapping much easier and gives you room to expand. Also, keep shit like cable management in mind.
- don't just buy the cheapest power supply you can find. Sure it's not the sexiest component, but it's one that can seriously wreck your shit, so take your time, do your research, and buy a brand that you can trust.
- if you want to have a computer that is going to boot quick, invest in an SD for at least the operating system. I think you can find them for under 100 if you get a small one for just your operating system and critical shit.

Also, remember that your motherboard matters. It's the thing that literally everything you buy is going to plug into. That doesn't mean you have to break the bank, there are affordable and stable options out there. Personally, I'm partial to Asus motherboards, but there are plenty of options out there, and you might find something cheaper that works for you.

Also: I don't know if they still do it, and their goal is obviously to sell you product so take it with a grain of salt, but Newegg has youtube series on computer assembly and component lines that is actually pretty good, you may want to check them out.

It all depends on your budget. I would say to look up videos on youtube for good builds, because that's where I found my build.

my gaming pc cost 400 because it was second hand and I wasn't interested in the stuff that was an extra $200 for slightly better graphics.
