While I'm searching, could anyone recommend some parts for the PC I'm building? First timer, for the most part there is no budget. It's going to be used all the time of course, using music programs like FL, maybe some gameplay recording/editing. Gaming will be the main purpose of the PC. I don't want to mess with overclocking just yet as well as water cooling, a bit hesitant on that aspect. I'm not sure if I should buy an external sound card to get more from my music or games.
Also, is this a good time to build a computer? Some people say so and so month is the best time of year to buy a TV, car etc. From what I've read a while ago Windows 8 wasn't being met with any good reviews and the people preferred Win 7, I too seem to prefer Win 7 any other input you may add?
I always use amazon to buy stuff, but I have checked out Newegg and TigerDirect in the past, which have better prices overall when it comes to computer parts?
Any other information that you would like me to provide that would better help the suggestions?
