I'm a noob to PC gaming but I'm planning on buying a desktop gaming PC from a company that specializes in making them. My budget is $2,500 - $3,000.
I don't know what resolution I'll be using for gaming because I'm a noob. I plan on getting a 23" Samsung LCD display. I've already decided that I'm getting the Intel Core i7-920 (2.66 GHZ - Quad Core) processor because it is the only Intel processor that fits into my budget.
