Building my first custom PC
I'm very excited for this project and have been planning for the last few days. I am a beginner, so please forgive me if I make some newbie mistakes. I'm teaching myself little by little. :]
What I'll mainly be using the machine for is some video editing & capturing (nothing too heavy though), basic Photoshop-ing, and the average web surfing. My current machine is getting very outdated and I'd like to give building my own a shot.
I thought it would be smart to ask a more experienced person to look over my plans make sure everything will be compatible, if my parts will run everything smoothly, what I should upgrade, are the brand names good, am I missing anything, etc. Basically, any help you can give is appreciated, even if they're small tips. :]
So, to the plans!
