Hey all! This is my first time building a pc, and I am trying to put together a rig with some decent gaming capability, but nothing extreme (finding the sweetspot on the price/output curve is something I've been trying to do).
Budget is fairly flexible, but ideally the build would be kept relatively simple for a first timer. Hence I haven't really been looking into overclocking, for example.
This noob would definitely appreciate any thoughts you might happen to have!
