This is the first time that I ever built a PC before. I planned this 6 months out before ever pulling the trigger. My goal was to really make a tight budget for all of the parts that i was getting. I really didnt know what vendor to trust either so i went with Newegg. I also made it a point to not to cheap out on anything that was in the case. I was nervous during the build. What prepared me the most was watching other people that were giving tutorials. I watched plenty videos during the 6 months. It was never from one person either, every build is different and i want to make sure that i could approach the build from different angles.
