I'm absolutely ignorant about computer hardware - I mean completely ignorant, however, I've been saving money and I'd like to try and build a machine.
My budget is about $2500 to 3000 and I am NOT in a hurry - in other words I am ready, willing, and interested in learning about how to buy and build properly.
I want to end up with a solid workhorse of a machine that can also handle the most demanding games on the market. I am also going to need at least a 20" monitor along with said PC.
I would like to know if anyone can point me in the direction of a good source of primary information about how to assemble hardware. Also, any and all specific recommendations about hardware would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, I have some money to spend, so I'd like to get the best for up to 3000.
Thanks, and pardon me for being so clueless.
