Alright so lately i've been wanting to build my own custom desktop.  I'm relatively new to the whole building of computers, and i can't say im the most savvy when it comes to them.  I do a lot with my laptop (Music notation, Composing, Gaming), but lately it just hasn't been up to par with what i want.  I'm mostly looking for a good gaming computer.  What would you suggest I do?

First of all set a budget, You can spend excessive amounts on a computer.

Second of all choose what Sort of system you wish to build AMD or Intel (If your budget can allow for it)

Then a supplier. I recommend ascent.co.nz - There prices are a bit higher but include free shipping and they have great service if you need it.

For a system no more than 1000, I would recomend you go AMD, you will get more for your money,

Are you looking at just a computer or computer + screen + keyboard

A faster processor is better than more RAM correct?
