As this console generation ends, I think its about time I make a change in my life. No more Xbox and Playstation for me. Nope. PC games here I come!
I've decided that I don't want to be shackled to all the crazy stuff that these consoles force you into. I don't wanna pay for online play, I want better graphics/performance, and I'm ready to go digital. Oooooooooooooo. Scary stuff, right? Nah, son. It's gonna be awesome. Anyways, I'm building a PC for the first time ever, and I'm not exactly 100% positive I know what I'm doing, but I'm sure that'll only make it more fun.
Now, I'm not asking for you guys to spec out a PC for me, but what I am asking for is your advice to a few things:
1. Any tips/warnings on the actual building process would be really nice to hear. I don't want to spend all this time and money and fuck something up. I'm really scared of that.
2. Any awesome gear recommendations that you found were awesome quality or just a great deal in general would be something I will definitely take into consideration. Currently, I do not have a list of build items because I am still trying to figure out exactly what I need...
3. Good websites to buy the parts from. Is amazon okay? Where can I get the best deals?
4. Is it stupid to think that I can build a decent gaming/work computer for around $1000?
I've watched the video of Will and Jeff building his PC, which helped me get a pretty good understanding of the whole process, but if you've got any good advice or recommendations based on your rig or whatever, I would love to hear it. Thanks for all the help!
