Hey guys, Im new to building my own computer, my current one was made by a family friend back in 06 that only cost me 1k for entire thing from scratch (so I imagine just rebuilding one from the ground up is best way for me to go).

This time around though I have a job and can afford one thats a bit better (id like to mainly play games/watch media on it) although I could save up for it to purchase all at once, in my head I was thinking about spending 350-400 each order then research for the next parts (ordering 1-2 parts at a time and slowly build it).

Is this a good way to approach this or should I just order it all at once? and if it is witch parts should I considering ordering first? My guess would be motherboard and case but after that im not sure witch could decrease most in a months time and so forth.

Anyhow after I get some feedback ill probably do some research and ask u guys witch is better in your opinions on the parts and so forth, thanks for the replies in advance.

Order it all at once. If you buy in bits its pointless because the technology moves so fast in this game. What you buy today is effectively obsolete within a month anyway.
