Default New here and hello

Hello I'm new here and I enjoy computers and video games. My computer is a load of crap and I'm going to build a new one. I know quite a lot about computers and the Internet has shown me everything I need. I love weather too.

Yes I was looking for a good computer forum and this one seems to be the one. I live in Canada and one thing is the prices of computer parts seem to be higher and I know the CAN dollar and USD dollar and right now there close. However the prices are still way higher then the US prices. So I will buy my parts online from if that's a good place to buy them.
