Hello, so I'm a newbie at this and been wanting to build my own gaming rig for a while now... Been doing lots of research and trying to educate myself on becoming more tech savvy. Understanding what means what and what it does. Basically I want a gaming rig that can play just about anything at 60fps the newest titles on the highest graphics possible. If anyone can help me out and shoot me some parts much appreciated!!
