Default where to look

Hi guys. Just like to say that TF is a pretty sweet site and that Im happy to be apart of it


any way....On to my question......Im going to be building my own pc in a month and I was wondering where I can get some good websites on what parts are good,why and how they work and what would suit me best...I wanna know as much I as I can about my system before I buy the parts...so yeah...also whats the best place to buy parts...Im on a 1600-1700 budget...I like newegg.com cuase its super reliable and CHEAP! and zipzoomfly is ok...


-Patrick
