First thing you will need is google. www.google.com
will be your best friend. Then a few of the latest games, such as Battle Field 2, Call Of Duty 2, Counter-Strike: Source with Day of Defeat: Source, and Half-Life 2, Quake 4, and many others. IF you want a good cheap and beautiful game, buy Far Cry, it's like 20$. You might want to try a nice addicting game of Counter-Strike 1.6. For all the Counter-Strike, Half Life, and Day of Defeat, you'll need Steam. This can be downloaded at www.steampowered.com
You'll need to register an account and register the game's cd keys. Keep in mind, most of these games are rated "M", so if you're under 18 you'll want to go with your parents. For demo recording, you'll want FRAPs. other than that, you might want to consider overclocking as a big part of your life as a gamer because it will allow you o push your preformance of your computer to the max, but we can save that for later.
P.S What kind of budget do you have? (Min to Max)
