I was thinking of building a custom computer by myself this summer. I think I know how to assemble the hardware and do the installation, but I don't really know what to buy. What is the difference between an i5 and an i7 processor? How can I tell a good motherboard and video card from other ones? Should I get solid state memory? Is 8gb ram good or is that average? Could I put like 16 gb ram in the computer?

Hi Captain_Spacie :D
You may have been better posting your topic here http://www.geekstogo...-and-upgrading/ meanwhile you can find sound advice and photographs to help you here http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/
The secret when you require assistance with building your own computer is to provide a budget for people to work with and to say what the computers main use will be, for example you do not need a $300 video card and 16GB of Ram for surfing the net and office duties.
