I live in southern Virginia. I have never built a PC. However, next semester I will have some additional free time, and I want to learn a new skill. My budget is between $600 to $800 to build a new PC from scratch! I use my laptop now for excel spreadsheets, the internet, and a bit of gaming (mainly Civilization V). I want to build a desktop that can do all of that, but I don't know where to start! I'm not computer savvy, but I want to be. Could one of you fine gentlemen tell me where to start?
Also, I like the idea of a water cooled PC. I was looking into it and it looks really cool. I do a lot of calculations with water pressure and such with my civil engineering courses. Would it be over ambitious to try and built a water cooled PC for my first build, or should I shoot for the stars? Let me know what you all think. Thanks a bundle!
