Hello,

I am starting to get into PC gaming and I don't have a clue about how to make a good gaming pc. :??: If anybody could provide me some info, that would be wonderful and greatly appreciated! :)

Some good things would be: what parts I'll need, what parts are good and which ones are crap, and what will I need and what will I need to know? And what else to watch out for/keep my eyes peeled for.

Also I would like some links to helpful websites. Any websites are helpful. Even websites with some basic info like how to put the whole thing together. :D

And if you decide to find a case (which you don't have to! :lol:) The dimensions have to be these or under: 19 1/4 long x A little under 11 1/2 wide x 22 1/2 tall (This isn't necessary, but if you do find a case, [preferably black and red] make sure it has good cooling and also places to put cables for components.

Thanks for any info.

Kind regards,

Elliott


 
There's alot to learn, and a lot of it requires experience.

The following is a good start, but no means a hard guide you should follow:

Building your own computer is easy. Building it takes 2-3 hours, and installing windows takes about 30mins to 45mins, and after that downloading and installing drivers takes another 30-45 mins. After all that, have it download windows updates at night, it may take a 2-4 passes to get them all.

Installing Windows:

Protip for installing drivers safely, install them one at a time and restart the computer after each install to avoid breaking the OS, which can happen if you try to install them all at once.
