Sorry for the stupid question but I'm trying to build my first computer and I feel pretty lost. I've looked at the requirements for the games I want to play and they all say " (specific model) or better, so I'm wondering how do I search for better parts short of reading through the specs of every available part ever made, and if I do need to read through the specs, where can I find out wtf it all means?
P.s. Part suggestions would also be very welcome. I haven't got a budget yet because that really depends on how much I manage/decide to save, but I want to start planning it now so I can decide on a budget, be ready when I have the money and possibly buy some parts early when special offers are available. This is partly a necessary upgrade and I really want to keep it as cheap as possible, so I think gameing wise I just want to make sure I have access to the types of games I can't play on a console without worrying too much about what graphical settings I need to resort to. (I do want them to run smoothly though). The games I know for sure I want are DOTA2, Path of Exile and Starcraft 2.
Thanks for any help.
