    Take your time and do your research, its tons of fun building PC's.  It can also be frustratingly challenging if you dont pay attention and take your time.

    good luck - you can get every single component to build a system , except a videocard .
     
    In fact, I think it's easier to buy components to make a rocketship  than it is to find a videocard.

    Hey there, and welcome to the world of PC gaming!
     
    Its honestly great, whether you're a casual like me or in it to win it.  The build is the best part.  Use a site like pcpartpicker.com to plan it out, research what you want, and ask forums for advice if you have questions.  This seems like an awesome community so far!

    Current Build:
    Ryzen 9 3900XT
    Arctic 420mm AIO
    MSI MEG x570 ACE
    32 GB Trident Z Neo CL16 3600mhz DDR4
    EVGA GTX 980 ACX 2.0
    Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCI 4.0 1TB
    EVGA Supernova G2 850 Gold
    Thermaltake Level 20 XT
     
    Best quote I've ever heard:
    Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.

    ^^^ This post... the building part is a heck of a lot of fun when putting together water cooled computers and overclocking. Seeing your hard work pay off with extra FPS and a better gaming experience is a blast.
     
    Welcome to Gaming... you've got a lot of old games to catch up on... ENJOY!

    The best advice I got when building a pc was to not just focus on pc hardware but make sure you have a monitor that will do it justice!

    I've recommended "IsThereAnyDeal.com" to a few friends now for finding video game deals. They scour a ton of websites and track pricing over time, including historical lows.

    Unfortunately, this means I now have more games in my Steam library than I have time to play. #firstworldproblems
