Solved Building a gaming computer

Specs: Windows 7
I'd like to build a gaming computer with components that have the best warranties on them. I know Seagate had 5 year warranties on their internal hard drives, some bfg nvidia cards had lifetime warranties, and some motherboards had around 2 to 3 year warranties on them. I used to work at an electronic store keeping track of that but now am a little rusty. Any ideas out their for building a great gaming machine with really nice components? I've looked for guides also online but alot of them are 2 to 3 years out of date

✔ Best Answer
The 1st thing you need to do is decide on a CPU brand - AMD or Intel - then you need to choose a particular model. Once you know the CPU socket type you'll need, do some research on the available chipsets, then you can look for a motherboard based on your chipset of choice. RAM should be easy enough to figure out, then you need to decide on a graphics card. Based on all that, you can choose a power supply. And depending on what you want to get into, you can either splurge on a SSD for the OS & get a conventional HDD for storage, or just run strictly conventional drives. This should help:

A gaming computer doesn't need more than a 6 month to a year warranty. It will be too old by then to worry about it.

If you simply want to choose because of warranty then you can also buy the insurance deal sold at almost every place.

Hang up and live.
