I was thinking of getting a new computer within the next year or so, and i was also thinking of trying to build it, instead of buying one, as i could save a lot of money. Just from googling "computer building" and things like that, I am greeted by a wave of things i don't understand, and is mostly foreign to me. Can someone explain to me the essentials, like what i need? I have a basic knowledge (Motherboards, don't let your graphics card melt) but other than that, I'm clueless. As for how powerful i'd want my computer to be, I know that something that could run BF4 at 45 frames would be expensive as dicks, but I'm aiming for something that could run a game like X-Com at upper settings, and run TF2 and CS very well. I'm in the price range of around 800$-1100$. I really don't know if thats not enough, or more than i need. Help?
