I've come here looking for suggestions on re-building my PC. Just to say rite away, I live in Canada, and am only 16, so I have a fairly low budget compared to what some of you may want to throw at me. Next, the type of PC I am looking for is a "decent" gaming computer, and by that I mean something fairly up to date, but not an over the top super-computer. I'm new to custom PC's, so I donít know exactly what I need (although I have done allot of research and have come to some conclusions). Basically what I figure I need are:
-And possibly a case w/new PSU
(if I am missing something, please mention it)
I figure I can keep my hard drives. Also my video card is fairly new (Radeon 9000 PRO) but Iím not too sure how that would hold up to some stuff coming out soon. Also, I am fine on the software end so I donít have to worry about spending $200+ on and OS and firewall, so that gives me a little more to spend. I donít have a solid number for my budget yet, but I figure that I'll start with the motherboard and build off that. Their are a few independent shops around town also that I could probably get what I need cheap, but i still would like some opinions on what I should look for so I donít look like a complete idiot when the clerk is throwing names and numbers at me that have no meaning in my head at all.
