Best gaming build for under $500
Hi everyone, im sick of using this old computer and its about time i upgraded, at first i was just gonna buy a fully setup ready pc but i have been told that im much better off building my own. So basically i have a maximum of $500 to spend (doesnt matter if its a bit over) to get me the best gaming computer i can get. So if you guys could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated as i have no idea what to buy currently. Looking forward to reading any builds you can post!
P.S I already have a nice moniter that im happy with.
EDIT: I thought i should also mention that ive never built myself a computer before and im not too familiar with all the lingo, so would it be just a screw in and turn on job, or is there alot more to do to set it all up then that?
