I want to build my first PC, and I want it to be for gaming.
I only have experience with upgrading my memory, adding a slave hard drive, adding a network card and a wireless card. I actually used guides for all of them, but for the RAM, it's incredibly easy.
I made a list of things I would need to buy. I'll post the list up but before I do, I want to tell you what I want the computer to be:
Burn DVDs and CDs
Play DVDs and CDs
It's going to run XP and I already have a disc..
Okay, now for the list. If i'm missing anything or something's not compatible, please tell me which one I need.
I type like a n00b, sorry. I'll edit my post to make things clearer if you like.
OK. Now for the list. (I'm buying all of this from newegg)
