      For CF? I recommend you stop saying that to people.

      For high end games? Go for it.

        How do you know if he doesn't want to play the new Crysis?

        Windows7 will run a lot better too with a good GPU.

        You don't have to agree with me.

              Where would be a good start if I want to learn about building computers.(I know next to nothing).

              Maybe a good, high-detailed guide or something?

                For an engine made in 1999 on a game developed in 2005-6? I doubt that xD

                Take a look online. Im sure there are some courses you can do or self teach.

                My knowledge comes from my University degree, experience and learning from people who know better than me.

                  I'll try to pick up some courses on it in college then.
                  And in the mean time I'll try to find basic tutorials.

                    1. put cpu, ram on motherboard

                    2. put motherboard onto the case with screws.

                    3. screw in psu

                    4. screw in ssd or hdd, and dvd rom

                    5. put gpu onto motherboard.

                    6. put soundcard on MB if u have one otherwise use onboard one

                    7. hook up psu power cables to ssd hdd, gpu, dvd rom, Motherboard aka MB

                    8. connect SATA cables to all ssd or hdd, dvd, from MB

                    9. turn on power

                    10. insert windows 7 cd

                        Id rather put the Motherboard into the case first.


                        Building PC's are simple. It's much like a puzzle. You just have to slot the components onto the right slots and screw in a few screws.
                        Every component comes with an installation guide anyway.

                            This looks good, but I want to know what certain parts do, how they do it, which parts are good(brand, version, etc...). I am very newbish to all this hardware stuff.

                                Okey so this site is good, i've been using it to compare the products in a computer for seeing if i should go prebuilt or build my own, but right now buying prebuilt seems to be choice.
                                We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.
