that being said, I'm a little iffy on buying the parts and throwing my own together. as far as computer customization goes, the furthest I've ventured is putting in the aforementioned video card. what I came here to ask, is....with such little experience, is it possible for me to build my own computer, and then set everything up afterwards? (ie; installing windows and whatnot)
I took the forum's advice and threw something together on pcpartpicker.com. I've read through the guide that Kalganized posted, so I feel I have a decent idea of what to get and what not to. It matches my budget as well. either way, criticism is welcomed. [ http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rfvR ]
I also thought about purchasing the parts and just getting it assembled at a local PC shop. anyone have advice on that? I'm a bit worried that they'll mess something up just to bleed more money out of me.
thanks in advance!
