Hey people. This looks like the place to ask, so: I'm gonna be building a gaming machine (probably around summertime) so I asked my cousin, who's crazy with computers, about how to choose parts that synergize together. He said the most important thing to do is find a budget and then match hardware within that so that none of the parts contribute more than any other part to the whole outcome. Made sense, the whole "weakest link" idea. That said, I'm kind of computer savvy, but not enough to know the intricacies of how hardware interacts with other hardware (just how to buy parts that work). TLDR Are there definitive "markers" that I can look for when choosing parts so I know the system is completely optimal? Or is it more of a "feel" for how parts work that requires more knowledge?
