Exclamation Need help building my first pc.

Hey guys so I need some help on how to build a gaming pc and what parts I should get. I have a 1300$ budget right now and don't know a lot about building computers and things needed. I already have a monitor so that doesn't have to be included in the budget. I am not sure if it is possible but I would like it to be able to run games on the highest or close to it settings and run games smoothly! Every bit of help would be so much appreciated (:

Default Re: Need help building my first pc.

Do you have preferences? Best way to start is read thru several other build threads on this site and others, then watch some videos on building PC's. Do you want to include a gaming mouse/keyboard,etc. - much of the peripherals are individual choices. Intel i5 builds are what you should start looking at based on your budget.
