Default Building my computer beast.

Hello, I really hate my computer so .... Am making my own COMPUTER BEAST!
Am only 12 so i need alot of help. I have selected the things that i need, But you can still suggest some.
Can you also list out ALL the componets i need. Last but not least, Am only 12 and should i build the computer MYSELF? ...... I read some few guides and it sounds kinda dangerous

Thankyou a bunch!

Only 12?!?!? I don't know where you're going to get the money to do this, but building a fast gaming computer will run you close to 3 grand or more. I'm going to list some parts that I would like to use for a gaming PC.

Eh, not sure a 12 year old would need THAT high end of components...

Maybe an X2 4400+ or even an FX-55, but isn't an FX-60 a bit extreme

Yes, way extreme. That build is all out nuts if anyone can afford it. I like to have that, but financially, no. Those are the latest and greatest stuff. Looks good though. I just figured he wanted a 'beast' so I gave it to him.

Yes, no offense to the 12 year old poster of this thread, but I doubt those components are needed by someone that seems to have not mastered typing yet.

Dudes!, Am a really fast typer -.-"
Yes TRDCorolla, Am acutally using nearly all the components you said. ALSO AM NOT PAYING FOR THE COMPUTER, MY PARENTS ARE .....
So thankyou, But one last question ..... SHOULD I BUILD IT MYSELF?? And would you list a FREE site that provides videos to show how to install the parts.

Am using Asus A8N32-SLI PREMIUM which is better than Deluxe
This will be worth it

EDIT: Am using a "Flashy" case, I dont like Lian-Li (Alot of people have reccomened that to me) But i like the RaidMax Sagitta ATX Black Mid Tower , For its style.

First of all, if you're already using almost all of the components, there is hardly a need for an upgrade, and I doubt you will see much of an improvement; aside from the FX-60 which is supposed to totally outclass the FX-57 when it comes to serious multitasking. Also, if you have no idea how to build a computer, I'd suggest just buying one. If your parents are paying for it and you have no budget, buy it from an extremely reputable gaming company that is known for making the best; such as Falcon Northwest, Alienware, or Voodoo.

Won't see much of an improvement? What kind of computer does he have now anyways? I can understand if he's got an Alienware now or something like that, but if you have budget to mid range PCs or even some high end setups, this is pretty good. If you compare those parts to what I have now (in my sig), it is a significant improvements. The benchmarks would jump through the roof.

Well he just said that he already has alot of the hardware that you listed, so I assumed that upgrading the few parts that he doesn't wouldn't show a dramatic improvement. He didn't actually say what he DOES have though...
