Hi. There seems to be a near infinite combination of components to make a viable system. This forum is great, but is there somewhere I can go to learn about each individual component and understand the pros and cons of all the variations? For example, some people recommend the Intel I7-960s versus the I5-2500k. I grew up in the 8086, 286, etc. era and while the additional choices are amazing, things were much simpler back in those days to at least get your hands around. Also, is this build still viable or maybe it is out of date?
