Help me build a gaming PC!
I really lack knowledge about how to go about building a brand new computer. So I have come here looking for some help. First of all my budget is $2000-$2500. Looking for the best possible for gaming! Thanks
To start, take a look at the sticky threads in this forum.
Yeah more information would be helpful. Do you need a monitor, operating system etc. to be included in that budget?
This build includes more or less everything, a good sized SSD, monitor and everything else you might need.

and just to throw it out there, Be sure you can build it handily before purchase, watch A ton of youtube videos on how to do it. All that jazz
I will second the Newegg videos. I recently build my first PC from scratch and these videos answered the questions I hadt
