this will give you an idea of what the actual process consists of.

The animated guide to Building a PC. Learn to build a PC from scratch with PCitYourself!

but if youre gonna be building in 4 months, i wouldnt start making lists now because new parts come out and prices change often. if/when you need help picking parts, just post back here.

Nope it is outdated and you could do much better. Like Muffin man said wait until about 1 month before you are ready to buy as selection and price can change quickly.

Is it a good idea to get windows 7 right away or start with Vista. Most the games i want to run on this involve Steam client.??
