What kind of budget do you have, and do you do extreme gaming or just casual gaming?

Yeah uk 2g will get you a super machine and also is the 2g including monitor
also building a computer is not hard if you know what you are doing , but many people have built computers with the help of some of the members here and to tell you the truth if you can twist a scredriver and push cables into ports then you should be ok
