A couple of months ago I was encouraged by my tech savvy, gamer, built-his-own-computer partner, to build my own rig instead of purchasing a shiny, new, already-put-together gaming desktop, so that we can game together.
Now for some of you, this might not even seem like a big deal. You've probably done it yourself, had friends who have done it or at least know this is a possibility.
For me, I didn't even know computers came in parts you could put together yourself, so I had no idea where to even begin.
Over the past few months I've started doing my research, reading up as much as I can, and learning about what I need to do to not only be able to put together a machine myself, but to make it as good as I can without breaking the bank.
I've started buying and acquiring a few things, so I'll chat about these separately.
This thread will be about me trying (and possibly failing) to do this myself, so please feel free to follow along, I may need some help so if you have experience in this, I'll definitely be asking questions along the way!
All this so I can get myself killed repeatedly in Dark Souls
Wish me luck!
