Going for my first build

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
ok i want the best computer i can get out 600$ (not including shipping) beacuse im just getting tired of the computer im on now, it use to be the familys computer and they just basically screwed it up but i got it to run at least decently, but it just cant keep up with my games (mostly WoW, HL2, and Stepmania) but i really have no idea what to get or what is compatible with what or what is good cause i hear good and bad reveiws for lots of things, so i was wondering if anyone could help me compile a list of what i could get, and i plan on buying this within a month or two tops, i have never built a computer before but i have taken apart/upgraded quite and few and for the few things that i wont know how to do, im sure i can ask on here or look it up on google, also i dont need an OS included in the price or a monitor/keyboard/mouse, and yes i dont mind newegg :3

anyways any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated to someone who is new to this like me, thanks

Well mate, you just got on a very interesting passage to gaming,

Suggestions? Well my first would be collect some more money and get a better rig If you want a really good DX 10 compatable rig you're looking at $1000+ USD

Really just another 400 dollars and you could get something decent.

haha im only 17, i make 200 on a good check, i get paid twice a month, right now i got a little over 100, im getting a new kitten on june 1st, thats gonna cost me like 130 at the vet (i already got everything else), so i plan by mid to late june to be ordering these parts, so yea i really dont feel like going over 700$ cause im really tired of this computer and i have no patience for it XD so i will change my budget to 700, i dont need some super hardcore gaming computer haha, just enough that it wont lag with high details on hl2 or WoW, or guild wars and such, is this possible with my budget? pretty sure it is by looking at other budget builds but i cant really tell that well so i may be wrong
