Resources for building computers [closed]

I want to build my own PC. I've never built one before & I find the variations in chipsets and CPU pins, etc a bit confusing at times. What I'm after is a site that is kept up to date with the latest hardware that says if I have this CPU I can use these motherboards, which can take this ram & these cards & so on.

"I suggest you to visite Toms Hardware website. They have a section for custom computer and people here are very happy to tell you if everything is compatible and will suggest you if your part is the best for your money.

Here is the forum for homebuilt."

"I highly recommend tom's hardware for benchmarks, tips, tutorials and more.

Their charts are particularly nice, CPU, GPU, memory and hard drives."

"I've always liked Sharky Extreme. They track weekly prices of components and have good buyers guides for certain price ranges.

And of course, you can't build anything yourself without Newegg."
