Default New here, first time PC builder

Hi all, I came here looking for some assistance in my first pc building project.

The post is waiting to be verified in the new builds section, when it's up i'll post the link.

I've always been a laptop user, mainly due to price and mobility, but recently prices of decent laptops are reaching and exceeding good desktops (which far surpass laptops) so I decided enough is enough, it's time to switch.

So i'm working to a pretty strict budget of 360 for a whole desktop with gaming capabilities (I know, pushing it) but I think i've achieved that.

I'm now just waiting for my paycheque to go into my bank account so I can order a new PC

Then I can say goodbye to badly cooled laptops, unupgradeable graphics and massively overpriced hard-drives
