When I was wee lad, I grew up gaming on the Atari, Nintendo, Snes etc. I never could grasp the idea of playing games on the PC even though I have heard of great games like counter strike and certain MMO’s among others. I’ve recently gotten into PC gaming when I downloaded steam and snagged Portal and Team Fortress 2. Now I’m a pretty rational and open minded individual as you can see from some of my other articles, so attempting to build my first PC is no easy task. This I know and some of you may tell me to refrain from doing so or you may even encourage me to do so. Well the fact of the matter is that I want to broaden my gaming horizon. I want to able to experience all of the great things about a first person shooter on a PC in maximum settings or play MMO’s with you.
Asking others for advice on this subject always brings about these questions. How much are you willing to spend? What type of PC are you building? Are you going to game on it regularly? Now these are questions that I get all the time. My responses to those questions were as followed:
Here are a couple of the parts I am currently looking at purchasing for my build. Please feel free to add your input on some suggestions or alternatives that I should look into.
Purchased so far:

Looking to buy:
Now that you have seen what I am hoping to buy, are there any recommendations that you feel would more beneficial to what I am trying to build. Also, what are a few common mistakes that I should be aware of when shopping for components and parts? I would love to be well informed so I don’t waste my money foolishly. Thanks in advance everyone!
Note: I can’t take full credit for this build as it is my friend Enate who is helping me out on picking out parts and whatnot. Big thanks to him for his help!
