|"Should you tackle the project of building your own computer? Well, there is no reason not to. Even if you know nothing about computers, if you have a desire to learn them, then you can. And once you know the basics, you can build! You can learn as you go. In my opinion, it is best to do this at least once. If you go to buy a pre-built PC by HP or Compaq, they are fine. But, keep in mind that, often, PC manufacturers reduce price by using lesser quality parts. Also, if you do not know you're ass from a PC, you can be certain the salesman will pick up on that and really take advantage of it. I'm not saying all computer salesmen are dishonest, but you wouldn't believe some of the stories I've heard. In short, you need to know what you're talking about. We help you do this on PC Mechanic and I think you will find this tutorial in particular quite helpful. |
In the following pages, you will find the steps to building your own PC. Enjoy!"
