Alot of people are telling me to build my own computer. Are there any good websites out there for me to build my own? Let me know, the more the better!

Custom computers allow you to save a lot of money and you also learn a lot as you do it. Prebuilt systems cost an average of $300-$500 more just because someone else built it as well as the fact that they will use cheap parts wherever they can.

Try these sites. They may help you.
www.tigerdirect.com
www.newegg.com

And as far as what you want in your system, just post a budget of what you would like to spend and myself as well as others would gladly like to help you.

its not hard...most things will only fit in one spot, if you mean compatability then yes we will be able to tell if the parts you choose can go together

dont choose a website to get all the parts from just find the rough specification that you want and then buy parts e.g a case from somewhere and a proccessor from somewhere else

why would you buy them from a bunch of different places? if you can get them all from one place and it has nice low prices
