Default brand new to the forum

Hello Everyone,
I'm new to the forum and somewhat new to computers (learning about how to build one). I stumbled across this when I was researching buying a new system. I hope to learn from everyone.
Can someone suggest getting me started on building my own system (perhaps a good thread)? I bought one recently from Bestbuy, but after reading these forums, I pretty much decided that it would be cheaper to build it myself.
Thanks everyone! I look foward to interacting with you all!
Avid

Make a thread about it, in the first forum (Building, Buying and Upgrading for General PCs). Better organisation

Ah, well then I say you also have bad grammar as that is a spelling error, not a grammatical error. And it's only spelt 'organization' in U.S. English I can also complain that you didn't surround the words you were specifying with apostrophes, as I did just did with 'organization'.

I suppose you'll now complain I said 'spelt' instead of 'spelled'? :P

I know of very few people who would beat me at being a grammar Nazi

Also it's 'Yami', not 'Yam', though that's entirely up to how you interpret my alias so not 'wrong' in this topic's sense.
