I was originally on PS3, but got fed up with the available games and graphics/performance. So I decided to build my own gaming PC. PCPartPicker was like a god send, the compatibility feature is literally the best thing ever. But of course I had to do a veritable ****-ton of research in my spare time. By the end of my first build I had researched and bought all my components over the course of 3 months (mainly due to a $200 a day cap on my bank account & PayPal transfer time). Considering how much time I put into research, putting it together and having it start right up was definitely the easiest and most rewarding part.
