Default newbe

Just wanted to say this is a great website, I'm and old guy getting into computers because i want to stay up with my kids (11 AND 13 YEAR OLD BOYS) so we have some common ground and have some fun gaming,etc. I have been reading in the forums- and I have learned a great deal already. Hope to purchase parts and have a friend make a gaming computer within the next month. I currently use an upgraded Hp desktop with a 8600 gtx card a year ago and the kids and I play Battlefield a few times per week on it. BUT, I know the system is getting dated and expansion/upgrades are tough on this type of system. So, looking at a build soon. Looking forward to learning enough to ask intelligent questions regardign the build soon.
