I want to build my own gaming computer, I plan on saving up around $1,000-$1,500 for it. I have a good knowledge of computers, but I'm not a wiz with them, even though I love them and want to know more about how they work. How hard would it be for me to build a gaming pc from the ground-up with almost no hardware experience?
You don't need to know too much about hardware to build one, just go on Tomshardware.com forums and on New Build, ask them to choose the parts for you.
If you want to learn about hardware, then I still recommend going on that site. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/288241-31-read-posting-buyer-guides-troubleshooting
The hard part is choosing the parts and learning about what does what. The building part itself isn't that hard, so long as you have time and have a guide on the internet.
