Building a PC, Need Help

by chubster3000 / February 23, 2014 2:39 AM PST

This is my first time building a PC and any help would be much appreciated. I have about 800 dollars to spend and need all parts. The computer is mainly going to be used for gaming and I would appreciate any and all advice about anything gaming/pc related. I.e. what parts I need in general, what parts would be better for gaming and what parts are the best value.
