if you want to save money and ge tthe most out of your comp you will learn how to build because companys like dell and HP give you crappy equipment but make you think that its good.. plus for $700 you can get a pretty nice custom made gaming computer..

do you know anything like motherboards, sata hard drives, power suppy.. stuff like that?

Surprisingly I know a lot about gaming computers and computers in general but I have never heard the acronym sff. Can someone tell me what it means please?

IF you can justify the differenct between the parts inside of a computer, you'll have absolutely no trouble bulding your own computer.

Everyone here has had a first time building their, comp. It's not hard at all. IF you still have doubts PZEROFGH, made a building guide with pics and everything.

Cheap Case
AMD Athlon 3200+
MSI K8N Neo-4
1x1GB RAm(so you can buy another one later)
6800GS
PSU
Cheap Optical Drive
80GB Western Digital SATA HDD

There ya go.
