Default New To The Forum :) Need Help Building A Gaming PC

But I won't go on about that in this thread, just here to introduce myself. My name's Matt, I'm 17, and lately I've been getting involved in a lot of PC hardware kind of stuff but I'm still very nooby and looking to learn more on these forums On a scale of 1-10, I'm probably a 5 but I wanna be about a 9 before I actually start building haha. Basically I know it's much cheaper to build a gaming PC than buying an Alienware or something and being on a tighter budget I'm trying to limit that as much as possible. I also do a lot of music production and the current computer I have can't handle much (Dell Inspiron, 3GB RAM, 250GB HDD, AMD Athlon Dual-Core 2.2 Ghz CPU, ATI Radeon HD 4200). I have a few parts in mind (Motherboard, Processor, and Case so far) and I'm basically trying to figure out if they're all compatible and can run what I'd like them to run :P But this was just a simple introduction and you'll be seeing me in other sections of the forum haha.
