A little history first and the rules of this guide, I have so far built from scratch 3 computers, and upgraded my computer about 6 times. For the purposes of this guide, we will be using a 1000 dollar budget, and Intel and ATI parts. The reason for this is that I know those pieces better then Nvidea and AMD and I want to give you guys the best information I can. As well we're going to assume that you have a case, keyboard, mouse, and monitor ready to go.
Part 1 is going to be real simple, I am just going to explain all the key parts of the computer so you know what you need to get, and what they do. Again this is focused for people who don't know how a computer is built.
