So the new consoles have finally pushed me to the point of saying "screw it, just build a PC". Problem is that every time I start researching information on parts I get overwhelmed and lose my motivation. I'm not completely ignorant to what each part does but discerning whether or not a part is the right one for me is where I lose it. I know what I want my PC to be able to do but I just can't make the connection on what one CPU can do vs another CPU or what it can do when combined with this much RAM and this GPU, etc. I just get overwhelmed and see/hear white noise.
Any advice on trusted resources? Preferably something that is detailed but also uses layman's terms?
