Hey guys I don't know much about how a computer works but I'm a lot better at using one then most. My recent computer was hit by lightening during the last storm. Tech came out and said id be better off buying a new computer so I figured this is my chance to build one for what I actually use one for. I play one game and rarely do anything else.
So with that being said I just want a computer I can play this game on without the lag when I shoot the gun and id love being able to hear sound ^.^ I'm going to attempt to put a parts list together don't rip me to shreds this is my first pc I've ever attempted to build.
