Building a PC

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.

Building a PC

by Rob2GFX In reply to Building a PC

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.
