I've spent the last couple of days reading through here and have some thoughts on a build but keep bumping in to a $2k price. I enjoy PC gaming but I'm not sure I really want to drop that much money on a new rig.
Anyway, the reason why I'm here is that I want to learn. The last time I tried to build a rig I pulled out the OCZ PSU and it looked like Cthulhu. I freaked out and took it to a PC shop whom I paid to assemble it.
This time I'm watching YouTube vids to try and figure out how to do it myself. It's kinda scary trying to do this for the first time by yourself. At least it is for me.
