Hi team - am hoping this is the right place to ask.
I've decided to make a new PC from scratch, but have absolutely zero/zip/nil idea of how to start. I dunno what's good, I dunno what makes one component better than the other, etc. I can strip and assemble a car engine in half a day but PC's - nope!
SO - I'm respectfully asking advice on how best to build a pc within these parameters:
Able to run CPU-intensive games (think Shogun II, etc) without breaking a sweat.
Preferably stacked with dual 2TB Hard Drives
Comes to around $1000USD, happy to extend a bit beyond that as necessity dictates.
I live in NZ but can get free shipping through work (US Embassy/Diplomatic mail), so all prices in USD is fine.
Really appreciate any/all help and advice you're willing to offer!
