Hello, I would like to upgrade and build a PC, I really don't know that much about building one right now, but I would like to have a nice Gaming PC starting probably with 8GB Ram, and a 1TB hard drive with room for improvement, (Extra Ram Slots, extra space for another hard drive) What am I looking at here for around $1000?
