    Building a PC

    Locked

    by itpunk ·

    Some time ago i saw a long article about building the PC- from start to the end but I don`t find it anymore (here in techrepublic). If anyone can find it for me, i would appreciate it.

    Also, if you could point me to some good site, where I couldlearn the computer anatomy (for free), so that i could easiely put together computers myself and also solve problems inside them.

      Okay, here are some freebies:
      Look at http://www.pctechnician This site will walk you through building a computer from scratch. As for troubleshooting, look at http://www.windowstrouble.com If you need a dictionary of computer terms (if something isn’t explained well) look at http://www.webopedia.com If you find you need drivers look at http://www.windrivers.com (also has troubleshooting tips) and http://www.driveguide.com. For discussions about hardware compnonents: http://www.tomshardware.com
      As for techrepublic, not long ago they had an article on motherboard and powersupply selection, search under motherboards and pcupgrades. Intel has lots of info. about their chipsets (www.intel.com) and I think one of the better boards out there is asus (www.asus.com). Hope this helps.Good luck.

      There is no better teacher than experience. Buy your own components, screw them up, replace them enough times and you will learn.
      You will be a better person for it. Every component comes with either a manual or a read me file. Use the resources. One of the best is Mark Minasi. If you found TechRepublic, I’m sure you can find Mark.

      Hey Slim, come on in, the water’s fine! Seriously, building your own computer is not nearly as daunting as it seems and here’s a couple of great sites where you can find more articles and reviews on CPUs, motherboards, hard drives, video cards, etc. than you’ll probably ever want to read:

      Tom’s Hardward Guide (http://www.tomshardware.com/)

      Sharky Extreme <http://www.sharkyextreme.com/l)

      Once you've got yourself up to speed on what you want to buy here are 3 sites which will help you find it at the best possible prices:

      MarketPro - run regional computer shows (http://www.marketpro.com/)

      Buy.com - great prices & service (http://www.us.buy.com/comp/)

      eCost.com - also great prices & service (http://www.ecost.com/)

      HINT: If you go to a MarketPro show look for the vendors with the biggest, most professional looking booths and lots of boxed name brand hardware - they're usually the most reliable - sellers here usually work on profit margins of 5-10% and the best ones have brick and mortar

      You wont go wrong, if you look at waterwheel.com and/or pcmech.com.
      Then take your time, assemble your bits together ready to assemble them, read the litrature that comes with each peice of hardware. Start to assemble the case and its internals, remember to double check each connection, when assembled fire it up ifs alls well format and install your operating system and enjoy your creation (much more satisfying than a bought PC)any problems get in touch most things can be worked out by using abit of logic in the old brainbox.

      If you really want to know how to build computers and know how they work, look into some of the A+ certification books. Studying the path to COMPTIA A+ will really help you to understand the details of how to build and manage a PC.
