Default Hi, I'm a noob.

Hello everyone. My Name is UltimaPrime and I have just recently registered. I am farily new to the world of computer technology, and I only have one thing to ask.

I have been interested in building a PC for myself for the first time that is gaming oriented (Games like Doom 3, Half-Life 2, and Far Cry). Do you guys have any tips/recommendations for hardware/tricks that you can give me for this? Thanks.

get a fair computer that beats the standard system requirements of all those games. Unless your asking for the actual parts.

If people on this forum say that a piece of hardware is good it means it is. They are speaking from experience. Just have a look around and see what people say.
