Default Hey everyone

Hello everyone, just joined up on these forums though I have been browsing them quite a bit in the last few days, I have just posted for the first time about an hour ago.

While I helped my friend build a computer once, I'll admit I didn't really know what I was doing. Now that I am building a computer for myself, I am trying to develop some more indepth knowledge about components and what all of the number really mean.

I already posted a preliminary build in the "$500 Build Challenge - Advice Please" post in Building Buying Upgrading for General PCs. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all! :super_happy:

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Once I get my new computer built, I'll probably troll the games forums :-P
