    Default New Girl on the Block

    That's right gentlemen I am a lady . My husband is a huge computer/ gamer. I want to learn more about them so that we have more things to talk about and when he says something about computers I will know what he's talking about. I currently have a Hewlett Packard laptop. I want to build my own computer all by myself (should impress him). I have a budget of around $900. Any help would be great.

    What do you want to do with it? Do you want to game? Web browse/office applications? Or are you going to be doing graphics work with it? Its hard to base a build off of only a price range if you dont know if it needs to have a large amount of RAM, or if it needs to be graphics heavy or processor heavy.

    I want to play games with him and talk the computer talk with him. He plays Battlefield, Far Cry, Infinite, League of Legends, WOW, and Counter Strike. Just to name a few. I don't want him to know I am going to do this. I am going to ship all the parts to my parents house build it and bring it home.

    When he starts talking computer talk I have no clue as to what he is talking about. I do hair and makeup for a living and he has listened to me talk enough about that stuff that he understands what I am talking about. I just want to return the favor. The games look fun and if I started playing them it would just make our relationship that much better and I wouldn't feel so silly when he says something about them

    How hard is it going to be to put this together? I've watched him take apart and put together a bunch of them and it looks like you just snap them together. Is there anything else I am going to need? I think there are enough headphones, keyboards, and screens in the house for me to use.

    That parts list should play all of those titles probably all on ultra actually. The 7870 is a great little card for the price. But I agree with Steve, Doctor_Death helps out a lot of people with parts! I priced out those parts so you wouldnt have to upgrade your processor for a while and your graphics card would be the main thing you would have to upgrade. You do need to upgrade parts every once in a while, thats just how the world of gaming works.

    Computers are quite easy to put together! I would look around online for how to guides. I know Newegg has a good one, but they are all over the place! Just do a quick google search and you will find everything you need! If you have any problems of course, you can always come back here, this community is very helpful

    Nvidia and Intel are great, but they are a lot more expensive. AMD does a great job for the price and the 7000 series graphics cards are great performers. GTX and i7 series are really amazing performers, but they are more expensive. There is just a whole trade off system between them lol
