go watch lots of build logs/guides on youtube


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

You could start watching some build videos from LTT or other tech youtubers, they reguraly upload new ones, either to follow along or to learn what is what.

Ask around friends and family for any old computers they have lying around, i cut my teeth on an old Windows ME system my dad had lying around. Sometimes you learn best by  taking it apart, putting it back together,and breaking the hell out of it.

PCpartpicker and youtube are your best bets.  

 

Use PCpartpicker to make sure your parts are compatible and you'll see other people's builds.  

 

Visit youtube to find videos for the lastest review for GPU's, CPU's, motherboards and more.
