If you know nothing about building a computer i suggest you get a ready built one,if you think your saving BEWARE mess up and damage a componant and your costs will rocket,you break a component you pay for a new one,on the other hand a shop bought one comes complete with a guarantee,by the way you've forgotten the operating system.

Could you link me to a site that has good gaming computers that will not charge a silly amount of money?
