1st time - need help!

So this is my first time even buying a part for a pc. I play a lot of high FPS games, as in csgo,gta ect. I would like to be in the range of maybe 800ish all i know is i want intel for CPU and nvida for GPU. I have no clue how to build this either. I would like your suggestion if I should or shouldn't be doing this. I noticed it's a lot cheaper then pre built on amazon or iBP. Thanks for you're help.

Jake.

Oh yeah. Just remember to take your time. It's easy to get frustrated, especially if things don't work well the first time. A few tips:

  1. The CPU clamp sometimes takes a lot of force to snap in. Don't worry, it's normal. Same goes for RAM.
  2. Make sure the ram is in the right spots. Check the motherboard's instructions to find out which slots to put them in. Otherwise, the computer probably won't start.
  3. Don't build on a rug! Static electricity is a big no-no
