Building my first custom computer soon

Postby m42orion09 » Tue Feb 23, 2010 11:48 am

This will be my first real computer project, so I don't know everything about it. If you know of anything better for a reasonable price that would work with the setup or anything you would do differently, please post it.

I'm not a hardcore gamer, though I do go on an mmo from time to time.

Also, I want to know if what I have picked will work together.
