Yea, thats pretty much it I think. A gaming PC is just a PC that has the most suitable hardwares for gaming. Usually starts with a AMD CPU...

First Built Computer:
Antec Plus1080(SOHO File Server)+430w
Intel P4-3.0E 1M Cache
Asus P4P800-Dlx i865PE,800FSB Dual DDR400
WD 120G-8MB Buffer
LG GSA4082B DVDRW 8X +/- Black
ATI Rdeon 9600XT 128M
Creative Audigy
512MB DDR PC3200

you should choose a cpu based on all your needs, not an AMD cuz he said so. And building a comp is as simple as he and you said.
I wish I had a computer but I am broke!!!

Building a gaming PC is like build any other but a few pieces of hardware need to be taken into consideration.

1. you need a really good video card, preferably one with at least 128MBs of ram like an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB card.

2. You should have at least 512MBs of memory, higher is better up to 1gig. After one gig the performance levels out so any more will not help.

3. Power supply needs to be at least a 350w or higher and a name brand would be best for stable through put. I would recommend a 400w.

Hope this helps.
