This was my 2nd computer I ever built! Lots of research and stat comparisons were done in order to achieve the desired results. I basically started off with a game I really wanted to play and built my computer around that. I also made a few minor adjustments for the sake of "lightly" future proofing.
WANNA BUILD YOUR OWN?
First off, if you only knew how ridiculously easy it is to build your own computer, you would have done it already! I'm telling you right now. It's not as hard as you think. I literally watched a few YouTube videos and researched a few sites here and there for specific issues I might have had, but outside of that. It was all pretty "snap into place". Eventually, I would like to get a video tutorial of myself building a rig, but for now, I want to show you a few links to some of the videos I watched when I was first starting.
Before I do that, I want to say this, and I can't stress this enough. DO YOU RESEARCH! Honestly, the hardest part of building a PC (whether for gaming, desktop, workstation, etc.) is knowing what YOU want it to do. Build it for a specific task, great. Build a monster rig for your legitimate EVERYTHING PC, absolutely! You can do whatever you want, however you want. The only thing in the way is current technology and YOUR budget.
These next 3 YouTubers were a MAJOR help in getting me started. 3 completely different personalities with 3 completely different knowledge bases. Linus is very Technical, Joey is all-round and/or practical and Kristofer is very budget friendly in his builds. Take into account, there are other fantastic YouTubers who do similar things, but these 3 are the ones who got me started. As my research continues (because yes, I'm still learning stuff), I will post other noteworthy YouTubers that you should check out for builds.
Watching different videos from either one of these 3 should get you on the right path

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you in your build and/or if you would like a certain video recommendation of mine!
