the first thing to do when building a computer is set a budget. Then decide what you want this machine to do for you, and how long before you want to replace it or any of its major components.

For a decent gaming machine i would say at least 1000 usd.

Let me know when you have a budget and what you plan to do with this machine and ill help guide you through the component selection process.

What exactly do you want to use the machine for? This helps to dictate what parts would be necessary.
