Im trying to build my 1st PC for a few reasons; 1. My dad says that he needs the computer all the time and my media and games are taking up too much space, 2. Im switching from console to PC because I spend more time at my friends house playing PC Counter Strike than at home playing Halo. 3. I will be Graduating High School next year and when I move out I'll probably need a computer. I went to my friend to get help but now every time I call he says hes busy (but I know hes playing Battlefield 2 he doesnt stop talking about it at work) so he told me to go to these forums and ask for help. Adam (my friend) helpped me pick out a few parts. But I will still probably need help with putting it together and specific parts(Like a processor, Adam told me that an AMD would be best for me but my dad works at Intel and he always talks about how their processors are better. Anyways heres what Adam and I picked out:
Radeon 9600XT 256 MB DDR 8x AGP V9600XT
2 Seagate Barracuda 20 GB UDMA/100 IDE Hard Drives
17-inch TFT Flat Panel Color Monitor
And ill pick up a mouse and keyboard later on.
I havent bought anything yet, but if there is more I need to buy or something better that cost the same or near same price please tell me.
Thank you for your help and I will post as I get parts and in the end Ill post pics of the finished product
