Is PC Part Picker a legitimate source for a first time PC builder?

#1Kaynes_ArsePosted 4/20/2014 2:25:41 PM
Looking to build a gaming PC for the first time this summer, but I'm practically clueless as to how to build one. My plan was to browse PC Part Picker, select all the pieces I need based on my budget, ensure they are compatible, and then just watch a YouTube video on how to piece the PC together.
