I'll start off by saying that I am a n00b to building PCs. I've never built one before but am looking to switch from console gaming. I joined this site because I want to build my first rig and want to get some help from some of the experts on this site. So I guess I'll tell a little about myslef. Well, I'm 19 and a Sophmore in college. I've played consoles my whole life and probably will continue to play them even after I build my first gaming PC. I like FPS, MMO, and RPG games. I'll just say now that I like FPS's like BF3 and the last COD game I bought was MW2. I also enjoy playing fighting games like Mortal Combat. I also enjoy Minecraft a lot, but don't play it much because all I own is a MacbookAir that I use for school and music production. I also LOVE music. Some of my heroes are John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Bob Dylan. I'm usually busy 5 days a week with school, so I probably won't be able to post everyday. Anyway, I won't bore you with anymore information about my life.

Thanks! I'm actually about to post my current list for my very first build. Nothing is finalized, and I hope I can get some good advice and suggestions on it.

what's your budget and do you have a preference for Intel or amd and if Intel see what I mean about parents doing that to their kids smh however you like cod so they didn't push the voltage way to far.
