ok, i would like to build a good gaming computer. i play AmericasArmy mostly, but i would like to also get Medal of Honor 2, and such games.
i currently have like a 2-3yr old computer from gateway. now i was wondering if i should try and update that, or build my own computer?
i would be building this is stages, not all at once. being 16 with a minimal job money flows slowly Crying
few things id like to know:
what are some good sites to shop from?
the motherboard, how do i know parts with work with each other?
what brands do you like, what are best for gaming?
im kinda basing it off of that, but not spending that much at a time. im getting what i need and then updating or adding more to that. i would like to use the SLI system
