I'm Building a Computer For The First Time...?
I'm building a computer, i will be using it for both graphic design and for gaming. What specs/ parts should I have? I will be using Newegg.ca to buy the parts.
I would like to spend somewhere between $500 to $800, but closer to $500 if possible ;)

For graphic work u need medium spec pc..
For gamin u need high spec system..
For 3D work u need higher specs.
I recommand somin like i5 processor, 4 gb ram, 1 TB hdd, 1gb HD graphic card.. U can do the mats from here... These specs will be good for graphic work, 60 percent of games, and 40 percent of 3D softwares...
