Day 1


    I started the preliminary research today.  At this moment the only knowledge I have is that I want to go with an AMD processor because of what I have heard about the performance and the good price.  So, this will start me off on my motherboard and processor research.  I want to go with the top of the line processor and motherboard so that this computer will last me a while before I need to upgrade it.  There are many motherboards out there for AMD processors, so the research may take a while.  I will start researching the processor.
